BACK TO WATERCOLOR PAINTING & STAMPING

Here is the next card in my series of Watercolor and Stamped Scenes.  This one is all SPRING!  I taught my students how to use masking when stamping to layer images.   Lots of watercoloring on this one and the stamped flowers in the pot took a long time, but it was worth it for the finished scene! 
CLOUD TIP: We actually used a scallop punch circle and blue chalk to create the sky by placing the scallop punch on the page and chalking around it so the clouds are left white. 

Wishing you a Wonderful Wednesday!

SUMMER ITCH!

Here’s what happens when I’m thinking about SUMMER and I get an ITCH to COLOR!  Sometimes that happens. . .I just get an unbearable, uncontrolled itch and I just have to scratch it!  For me that itch is coloring.   If I go for days without coloring something, I start getting that itch. 
So instead of a Watercolor Scene Card today its. . .
HOUSE MOUSE IN THE POOL!

WATERCOLOR BACKGROUNDS AND STAMPING

Here is the first card created using watercolor paints to create a natural background and using stamps to create a scene.  This is a winter mountain and lake scene created with the Close To My Heart stamp set Beautiful Things. 
SNOW TIP: I also used CTMH Fun Flock to give it a soft snow effect.  Even though this product is usually better for fur on animals and beards on Santa, I think it works better than liquid applique.  It seems that the applique puffs up a little too much and would take over the scene and detract from it, so this was soft and subtle enough to create the illusion of snow.
Have a great week and stop by again for some more Watercolor Card Designs later in the week.
