The first card we will make is using the Art Impressions Watercolor stamps. We will stamp a single pot and fill it with foliage and some pretty purple flowers. We will then do a light wash of yellow for the background and add a little grass growing on either side of the pot.
The second card we are going to use a masking technique to have 3 pots next to each other.
It's fun to use these stamps to make various scenes. Using the same pot as the first card we will stamp the first one in the center and then mask it to stamp 2 more behind. We can then stamp 3 different colors of flowers to make a beautiful flower arrangement.
The last card we are using a Fun Stampers Journey ATS stamp. I wanted to have fun using the wet on wet technique for the fish. We will take our stamped fish and a clean water brush to fill it in with a light layer of plain water. Then we will take a yellow, green, and blue and do a little wash to have the colors all blend together. Once we have the blend we like we will dry it with a heat tool to make sure the image doesn't have any wet spots. Next we will dab some of each color to give the effect of scales on the fish. Finally we will give a light blue wash around the fish to fill in the background. I hope you can join us for class on Tuesday night watercoloring with our distress inks.
