Hello Watercolor Friends,

Spring has surely arrived for most of us and I made a Spring birthday card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend roundup. A friend gave me the heart shaped balloon. I used eight stamp sets and nine markers to create it. See my list of supplies below:

Just three stamps and four markers were used to create my pretty “Poppy Painting” for today’s Watercolor Weekend project. I watercolored the Art Impressions Way by stamping the container from WC Containers in African Violet, then the foliage from WC Foliage Set 2 in Olive Green and finally the long-stemmed flowers from Watering Can in English Red and Olive Green (I added a few more buds by just stamping the single top flower several times). To achieve the “poppy” look, I placed a small black dot with the fine tip of Black into the center of each flower making sure to leave a little white space too.

Lately I have really been into creating watercolor projects that have a frame of some kind in the design. I decided to share one for Watercolor Weekend that is really simple to achieve. It only requires 3 stamps and 3 markers. You can use a shaped die or really anything you have around the house to use as a template. This project can also be used for any occasion, just stamp the sentiment you need. Don’t have an occasion yet, leave it blank until you need one, then you will have a card ready to go at a moment’s notice.

I traced a square lightly on my watercolor paper using my stitched square die with a pencil. Then, I used 2 flowers from the new 5008 – WC Flower Set 3 inked with 20 Magenta and 15 Olive Green and the small leaves from the new 5007 – WC Foliage Set 3 also inked with 15 Olive Green. I used the square as a guide to where I wanted to place my flowers. I used the 40 Brownish Grey on my palette to create the square. 

If you would like to see how I created this card, come check out the video on my YouTube channel. I hope you will join us for Watercolor Weekend and share your projects with us using #AIWatercolor.
