Watercolour Series 6 by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I have ventured into some watercolour artwork again... this time using WC Series 6 Set 2 - Sku#3498.  Both of the Series 6 sets depict a small town in the Engligh countryside, so I've used a couple of the images to create a small scene:
 I've used combination of both Marvy & Tombow watercolour markers, initially colouring the stamp of the houses in a dark brown.  Then I used the markers directly on the paper to add colour to the houses and to create the scenery around them.  I went back in with a wet paintbrush to soften the colour and move it around.  Here's a closeup:
These are such great stamp sets to work with, since they give you the foundation image, and then the colouring & background details are all up to you.  Art Impressions has a huge inventory of Watercolour Series sets that you can find on the website, here!
Happy watercolouring, everyone!


  1. Great card and love the water coloring. I don't have this set but have now added it to my wishlist.

  2. Karen, this is really beautiful! Gorgeous water coloring!
    hugs, Sharon

  3. This is so nice Karen. I've just ventured into using watercolor on my cards and haven't mastered it yet. lol All my images have turned into blobs of color with no distinguishable image any more. practice, practice, practice, Your card is inspirational!

  4. You make the water color scenes seem so effortless, Karen! Another beauty.
