Hello Watercolor Friends,

I made this card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend roundup. I used the bench from the - WC Bench Set and the stamp positioner to make this potting bench. I used three of the containers from the 4869 - WC Small Container set. I used the smaller watering can from the brand new 5012 - WC Wishing Well Set. My foliage and flowers are from the brand new sets 5007 - WC Foliage Set 3 and 5008 - WC Flower Set 3.

Other Supplies: Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock

For today’s Watercolor Weekend project, “Filled with Flowers”, I used three of the newly released watercolor sets. I simply LOVE all the new sets! 

Start off by inking up the watering can from the Wishing Well Mini Set first in Sepia followed immediately in African Violet. This makes a great steel grey color. I removed the ink from both bottom corners and the top center. Stamp in the lower center portion of your watercolor paper. Pull the colors from the lines with your watercolor brush and water. Using the stamp positioner, stamp the cobblestones from the Cobblestone Set (coming next week) in Sepia under the watering can. Next, stamp in the mini grass from Foliage Set 1 in Olive Green, pull the color, then ink up the tall flowery grass from the garden wagon mini set in Olive Green with African Violet on the little buds. Fill the watering can with foliage from Foliage Set 2 in Olive Green and flowers from Flower Set 3 in Rose Pink and Olive Green, Flower Set 2 in brilliant yellow and Flower Set 1 in African Violet. Add Olive Green to your palette and brush in between the cobblestones. Add a combination of Sepia and African Violet to your palette, combine to make the steel grey color and brush onto the watering can to add depth and dimension. Finish off with dot detail using the fine tip of African Violet.
Other: The Stamps of Life Stitched Circle Die, Post-It Notes, Doily, Patterned Paper
