Watercolour

I am posting on the Art Impressions blog today!
I have ventured into some watercolour artwork again... this time using WC Series 6 Set 2 - Sku#3498.  Both of the Series 6 sets depict a small town in the Engligh countryside, so I've used a couple of the images to create a small scene:
 I've used combination of both Marvy & Tombow watercolour markers, initially colouring the stamp of the houses in a dark brown.  Then I used the markers directly on the paper to add colour to the houses and to create the scenery around them.  I went back in with a wet paintbrush to soften the colour and move it around.  Here's a closeup:
These are such great stamp sets to work with, since they give you the foundation image, and then the colouring & background details are all up to you.  Art Impressions has a huge inventory of Watercolour Series sets that you can find on the website, here!
Happy watercolouring, everyone!

Such a beautiful scene so wonderfully coloured and the twine finishes of the design perfectly.

Stunning watercolour - you should do more of it! I love the idea of having a mini watercolour painting on the front of a card.

Hi Karen! I love your card!! Your little scene turned out perfectly!!! I'm sure you're happy about it. :) When I made my last DT order I was sad because I would have wanted every watercolor set. This one was on my wish list and didn't make it to my cart finally. :( I hope you won't give me too many regrets like that! ;D I'm eager to see your next creations. Take care, Marie xxx
