Challenge 192 Watercolor Stamping week two and new Watercolor release!!

Hello AI Fans!!

It's week two of the Watercolor Stamping Challenge over at Art Impressions, and we're also showing the two new Watercolor Minis ! Today I'm featuring the new Covered Bridge Mini Set.  I tried to make it a fall scene, but not so sure I accomplished that.  I used English Red to try to make the red leaves in the trees, and it looks a little more like pink spring flowers to me. I don't know....what do you think?  I also used the small grass stamp from the Foliage Set.  

To stamp the trees behind the bridge, I just made a mask of the bridge and placed it over the top of the stamped image, stamped the trees, then removed the mask. Voila! Please make sure you visit the Art Impressions Blog to see all the gorgeous watercolor creations by the design team.

Hope you join us in the Watercolor Challenge! Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week. Stay crafty!

Marvy markers used: 45 Sepia, 18 dark brown, 28 English red, Olive Green, 13 ochre, 5 yellow, 29 Prussian blue
Papers: Bo Bunny Apple Cider

Can you please explain how do you achieve the foliage on the trees.

I have been trying to figure out how anybody make it, I would be lovely if you posted a video of your watercoloring technique

Carmen, I would highly suggest you watch the video tutorials Bonnie posts on the Art Impressions Blog every Wednesday. She does an amazing job showing you how to use all these stamps with watercolors. One of the most important things is to remember to do "generational" stamping. In other words, ink once, and stamp four, five, or even six times in a cluster. That gives you different shades of your color from deep to light. Just remember to have fun and keep practicing!!
