Hello Watercolor Friends,

I made another red, white and blue card for the Watercolor Weekend roundup. I needed a flag so I drew that one using a pencil, a ruler and that Veteran card for my inspiration. Maybe Art Impression's Creator/Owner Bonnie can create a flag stamp for us to use in the future. 
This is day 16 of #thedailymarker30day coloring challenge. Join the fun! The goal is to color something daily even if it's a few minutes because we are all happier when we color or be creative. You can find out more info by going to the fabulous Kathy Racoosin's blog, click here.

I used five stamp sets and seven markers to create my card. See the list of supplies below:

Other Supplies: White Prismacolor Pencil, Canson Watercolor Paper

My project for today’s Watercolor Weekend celebrates summer with “Bright and Beautiful Blooms”. Watercolor the Art Impressions Way by inking up the multi-flower long stem from Flower Set 2 in Scarlet and Olive Green. Stamp the single long stem from Flower Set 2 in Violet and Olive Green. Add greenery to the bottom from Foliage Set 1 in Olive Green. Fill in around the previously stamped blooms and add height with the small flower from Flower Set 3 in Brilliant Yellow. Scribble a little Olive Green and Salvia Blue onto your palette. Brush Olive Green into the greenery and finally Salvia Blue for the sky.

I have really been into trying to create quilt patterns with my dies and stamps. My mom is a spectacular quilter and I wanted to try some with paper, so here is what I came up with. 

I die cut several watercolor squares using the Spellbinders Die. Using one of the squares, I stamped the mini watering can from the WC Wishing Well Mini Set in Sepia. I added some foliage with the vine from the WC Foliage Set 2 in Olive Green. I added some flowers from the 5009 – WC Mini Flower Set in Violet and Magenta. I added some grass using the WC Foliage Set 1.

On two more squares, I stamped the flowers from the 5008 – WC Flower Set 3 using Olive Green and Magenta. I cut them in half. To create the batik triangles, I scribbled color onto a craft mat and sprayed them with water. I dipped the watercolor paper into the pools of color. I die cut these with the Spellbinders Die. I also used this die to cut some additional triangles from the Gina K Designs Heavy Base Weight Card Stock- Plum Punch cardstock. I assembled my quilt and used a stitched rectangle to cut out the center. I ran the piece through my die cut machine using the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!. I cut the Gina K Designs Heavyweight Cardstock- Fresh Asparagus and Heavy Base Weight Card Stock- Wild Lilac mats using the next two stitched rectangles. I adhered them together and placed them on a white card base.

I hope you will try some new techniques with your stamps. We would love to see what you come up with!

  4. This is fabulous. I've had trouble using pens on the stamps with watercolor paper. The second and third times I stamp, there isn't much transfer. Any suggestions?

    1. Which pens are you using? The Marvy LePlume II watercolor pens are what I use and they transfer a lot. Hope this helps.
