Hello AI Fans!!
Today we are celebrating both a new challenge at Art Impressions Blog AND the launch of the new Watercolor Mini Stamps!!
Now I must be honest...although I've used the watercolor technique using Copic markers, I have not expanded into the world of watercoloring. I've been wanting to play, so I did have some supplies already purchased. But probably 99% of you out there know how that story goes. We purchase with every good intention, and then the purchase sits, waiting patiently for us to do something with it. So this challenge made me leave my comfort zone. And it took several (and I do mean several) attempts before I could come up with something that wouldn't make me totally cringe when I posted it. :) So please don't laugh too heartily at my attempt! I think what helped me more than anything was to watch the videos Bonnie has put together. She is SO talented and explains it all so well. Just visit the Art Impressions You Tube Channel and start watching. And keep the window open on your computer cause you'll probably want to keep going back to it for information. I know I sure did!
I used my Tim Holtz Distress Ink markers. I simply scribbled the ink onto my acrylic stamping block, and then picked up the color with a water brush. For lighter colors, I used more water...for darker colors - less water. I actually used three different stamp sets from Art Impressions to create this.
Papers are Prima Nature Garden
Butterfly border and single butterfly are dies from Noor Design
Please be sure to visit Art Impressions Blog to see all the gorgeous creations the design team has come up with. And then we'd love it if you'd join in the new challenge of April Showers/May Flowers! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
