If you're a fan of the new Foundation line of Watercolour stamps from Art Impressions, you'll be excited to know that there are 3 new sets releasing on the Ai blog today!
I'm excited to share a slimline card using the new 5469 - WC Foundations Watering Cans:
With a large image like this one, I like to use my Misti, to ensure that I get a complete impression of my image. I die cut my Canson XL Watercolour paper, lined up the image in my Misti (leaving enough room for the sentiment at the bottom), then coloured the entire stamp in Tombow Dual Brush Marker #969 Chocolate, and #565 Deep Blue, and stamped it. After pulling out the colour from the stamped images, I picked my colour palette of #757 Port Red, #528 Navy, and #565 to paint in the watering cans, adding layers of colour where they would be darkest at the edges, and leaving highlights in their middles. I used the same three colours along with #761 Carnation to stamp my flowers, then used #177 Dark Jade and #126 Light Olive to add in some foliage. The stamp sets are numerous - so you can see them listed below. I added a few small branches in #969, and painted in the post in a combo of #992 Sand and #969. I added some grass in #177, and painted in a watery shade of #528 to suggest a sky.
The sentiment from the Exclusive Hydrangea Set was gold embossed on vellum, and adhered across the bottom, after I had matted the image in coordinating cardstock. Be sure to check out the Ai blog on Saturday, to see what Dot and Tricia have to share, too!
