Ai Watercolor Weekend October 1, 2021



I'm so happy it's October! Here is my card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend. It was inspired by my youngest son, Brad who asked why would I only put two pumpkins on a card? Everyone who knows me, knows I do things in threes since I have three sons and have always decorated in sets of three (coincidentally, I also have three grandsons so the tradition continues). I told him it was a tutorial by our Queen B - Bonnie Krebs, Owner/Creator of Ai. So, I had to make something with three pumpkins and the rest of the scene just sort of happened. I had to add the deer since Brad is an avid shed hunter. If you don't know what that means, it's people who hike miles and miles to find the horns that deer shed. He has a lot of sheds but he still keeps doing it. Anyway, to make this card, stamp the scene from 5378 Stone Creek Scene inked in Tombow 192. I actually forgot to ink the hills and had to pencil them in after I stamped the barn from the 5371 Barn Set inked in both 969 and 565. Color the barn doors and roof in 969. Color the silo with 565. Color the barn in 312 and then make the shadows with the 565. Darken the windows with the blue fine tip Tombow TwinTone pen. The fence is also from 5371 inked in 969 and 565. The pumpkin is from the 5426 Veggies Set inked in 969. Make a mask with post-it tape and then stamp another pumpkin on either side. Color the pumpkins in 312, 925 and 565. Their stems are darkened with the brown Tombow TwinTone fine tip pen. The yellow flower grass is from 5007 Foliage Set 3 inked in 192 and 025. The bushes are from the 5372 Mini Foliage inked in 025 and in 925. Color the river in 526 and the rocks in 565 and 969. The grass is from the 5372 inked in 192. I used 312, 192  and 025 to color in the grass areas. Stamp the deer from the 5427 set inked in 969. The sky is 526. Add shadows with the 565.
