New for 2020 Art Impressions Watercolor Stamps

It's always fun when new product shows up at my door... and the new Art Impressions Watercolor release for 2020 did not disappoint!  There are four new sets making their debut on the Ai blog today (and they are available through the website, too!)  You'll be seeing lots of projects from me using the new sets in the coming weeks.  Here's what I have to share today:
 I am featuring one of the two images from 5260 - WC Large Shops Set.  I started by colouring my stamp with Tombow Dual Brush Marker #565 Deep Blue, stamped it on scrap paper, then coloured it again with #969 Chocolate before stamping it onto some Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  I loved the crisp look of the image on the smoother paper, so I didn't soften the lines, and decided not to add any kind of a background to it either.   I stuck mainly with primary colours, using #856 Chinese Red on the tiny floral image from 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set that looks like little hearts (love them!), and using my #1 Paintbrush, I softened the colours, then stamped again to add back the deeper tones.
Using my palette, I scribbled #991 Light Ochre, and picked it up with a damp brush, adding it as the main shop colour.  I used #476 Cyan for the sign and door, and painted stripes on the awning.  I added a lot of water to #969 Chocolate to make a taupe shade for the roof and window boxes.  I used #N57 Warm Grey 5 for the stone chimney.  I picked up #565, adding it to the windows, keeping some white areas as reflections, and then used it to add shadows under the eaves and canopy, and on the stairs.  I used the fine point of my #177 Dark Jade marker directly on the paper to add in the suggestion of leaves.  And that was it!  A very quick image to paint up.
I used 5061 Square Double Stitched Dies to cut out my image, mounted in on some red cardstock and adhered it onto my patterned paper base with 3D pop dots.
Head over to the Ai blog to see what Tricia & Dot have to share, and you'll see the other 3 sets that are being released *and check back next Thursday to see 4 more!
