Open Window by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
Did you see the brand new Watercolor Minis that Art Impressions released a few weeks ago?  There are six brand new sets available in the Ai store - you can find them all here.  I am using Open Window (Sku #4608):

These are so easy to use!  There are four stamps included in the set: the window frame, the planter box, a flower spray and a vine.  I coloured with Tombow markers directly onto the stamps, and stamped them onto watercolour paper.  Then with a damp paintbrush, I softened the lines of the images, and pulled the colour out to paint the shutters and panes of glass.  I coloured directly on the paper with a purpley/blue marker to add the shadows, and again softened it with my paintbrush.  This is about a 5 minute effort:
 In addition to the Minis... Ai has a huge selection of watercolour sets in the Ai store - check them out!
Happy painting!
