WC Series 3 by Karen Day

Hello Ai Watercolor fans!
I'm combining a bit of old & new today.  Last fall I painted up several images using WC Series 3 Set #1 (Sku #4056) and WC Series 3 Set # 2(Sku #4057).  I had always thought of these as "harvest/fall" stamps... until I saw this watercolor tutorial by Kendra Krebs - and she used it as a spring/farmer's market theme.    Here is one of the images that I painted, that I made up into a springlike card, along with the brand new WC Sentiments Set (Sku #4903):
 I used some smooth watercolour paper along with my Tombow & Marvy markers, then softened the lines and pulled out the colour with a damp paintbrush.  I added a little bit of sky, and stamped the sentiment once everything was dry.  After matting, I used pop dots to mount it, and tied some Maya Road twine underneath.

The grass is from Foliage Set (Sku #4051).  You can find a wide range of Marvy Markers on the Art Impressions website here.  Happy painting!
