Hello Ai fans!
She created a Southwest scene.
Hello Watercolor Fans, welcome back to another Watercolor Weekend. For this weekend, I decided to create a Southwest card. This one is so simple and comes together quickly. Let me tell you all about it.
First, I started out by stamping the pot in the foreground. I inked it up with 969, I didn’t need to stamp it off as I was going to fill it in with darker colors. I pulled the color out of the lines. Adding some 969 to my palette, I layered color on top of color until I was happy with the results. Next, I masked off the top of the pot, inked up one of the cacti from the Desert Succulent stamp set with 249, and stamped it into the center of the pot. I pulled the color out of the lines and added some additional color from my palette. I also added some pink to a few of the leaves. Once it was dry, I added some small grass beneath the pot and pulled the color out of the lines.
Next, I moved onto the house in the midground by inking it up with 969 and stamping it to the middle right of the pot. I stamped it and pulled the color out of the lines, keeping the sides really dark. I added some additional color from my palette. I added some color beneath the house to ground it. Once that dried I took a small tree stamp from the Desert set and stamped it a few times around the house. You can pull the color out of these (as I often do) or just leave them as is, artist preference.
For the Mesa, I inked up the smaller Mesa with (yup) 969, this one I did stamp off so that is was lighter, which recedes it into the background. I added some additional color to the Mesa and below it. To give it a bit more dimension, I pulled the color out of the sides of the Mesa into the background. I used some 565 to add some water to the top right of the house and to the sky. That’s it. I signed and dated my work.
I used my stitched rectangle die to cut it out, glued it to a piece of Gina K Design Christmas pine card stock using connect glue. I added the entire piece to a white note card.
I hope you enjoyed this weekends Watercolor inspiration and we hope that you will join us next time. Have a crafty day!
