It's been a great few weeks slowly releasing the new Art Impressions Watercolor stamps on the Ai blog. We've reached the end! The last 4 sets will be available for purchase on the Ai website (here!) today. I made a slimline card using two of the new sets:
There are 3 new Silhouette sets, this is 5428 - WC Silhouette Horses, and the fences are part of 5416 - WC Vintage Car Set. The barn is from the previously released 5262 - WC Mini Cabins Set, trees are 5372 - WC Mini Foliage, and the fence is from 5371 - WC Barn Set. The rocks are the new 5415 - WC Rocks Set.
I started by stamping my barn and fences, to determine where everything would go, and then I sketched in the mountains, hillsides and driveway. I then painted them all in with a light wash, as I knew I'd be stamping overtop, and didn't want to have to paint around the small images. With my stamp positioner, I added in the two horses, being careful to place the slightly larger one in the foreground, and the smaller horse slightly back. I added in the rocks and trees, darkening them with several different colours. To brighten things up, I added grasses and a few dots of yellow as wildflowers, and painted in the barn. Finally I used my #565 Tombow to add shadows where needed.
By the way, these are very well behaved horses that don't leave through the open gate...
