Ai Watercolor Weekend January 7, 2022

Hello and Happy New Year,

I love January because it's a fresh start to a brand new year and we have all the holidays and memories to look forward to. My first card of 2022 is a wintery card. The dog has dimension, because I messed up the one underneath. Instead of throwing it away, I stamped another dog, colored him, cut him out and used foam tape to stick him over the messed up one. So don't throw away your card after you put some work into it. To make this card, ink the truck from the 5011 Truck Mini Set in the new Tombow 555 which is the best blue for winter scenes, in my opinion. Stamp it onto watercolor paper after you have stamped it off once first. Make a mask and cover the truck so you can stamp the trees from the 5010 Tree Set 1 inked in first 177 and then in 555. Stamp the dog from the 4959 Dogs Set inked in 969. Ink the half tree from the 5010 Tree set inked in 969. Use a pencil to make your hills then use 555 to paint in the snow. Pull the color out of the lines of the trees, truck, dog and half tree. Use a positioner to stamp the bird from the 4966 Bird Bath Set onto the tree. Color the bird in with 969 and 847. Color the truck in first with 555 then add 969 and 947 for the rusty look. The tires and windows are colored in with N35. The dog is colored in with N35 and his color is 847. Add some sky with the 555. Use a fine tip black pen to darken the bird and dog eyes and nose. I used Nuvo white Crystal Drops to add the snow drops. I taped the two largest dies from the 5063 Rectangle Die Set to make the frame.
