Watercolor Barn Sunset by Jil Lebel

Hello Ai fans!

I know that many of you love the Ai watercolor series as much as I do.  I always look for new ways to use them.  I was watching video's on YouTube last Saturday and Sandy Allnock did several video's using Ai stamps. She used the Watercolor stamps with darker colors and I had to try it right away.  I was thrilled with the results!

This card used three stamp sets  WC Fir Trees Set 4960, and WC Structures 4110, WC Sentiments Set 4903.
I used my Zig Clean Color Markers.  They aren't the Real brush tip.  They actually have a bullet tip and a fine point tip on the other.  The bullet tip is great for coloring directly onto stamps. Once I had the color on my stamp I stamped them  onto my Strathmore 140 lb. Watercolor paper. I moved the color around with my #4 watercolor brushI used my watercolor palette for the sky and ground.  I just scribbled the marker color onto it and picked it up with my watercolor brush.

For this card I used Light Brown- 62, Dark Brown-62, Mid gray-96, Black-10

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!
