Hello! Shaped Watercolor Card by Carol Hintermeier

Hello Ai Fans!  

I am so excited and thrilled beyond words to be making my first post as an Art Impressions Design Team member!!!

For my first post, I thought it very fitting to say "Hello!" to you all by using a few of my watercolor stamps (yep, I have quite a lovely collection of them!).  I live in an area that is fortunate to have two of the big crafts shows nearby and Art Impressions is at both!  For a few years, I watched Bonnie Krebs demo in their booth and for the longest time thought that I could never do that!  Finally, in 2015, I took an Ai watercolor class at the Scrapbook EXPO and was totally hooked!!!  If you watch Bonnie's videos and hear her say, "you can do this," it's true!!!!  Go to Ai's YouTube channel and find some of the earlier videos to get started--anyone can do this!!  Can you tell I'm a fan?  LOL!

I created a circular card and died some ribbon to get a perfect match!


Here's how I died the ribbon.  Scribble your marker, spritz with a bit of water, and dunk it in.  I blotted this one onto a paper towel to lighten the intensity of the color.  Let it dry and it's ready to use.


I added a little tag with "hello" stamped onto it.


Thank you so much for stopping by!!  Happy stamping!
