Art Impressions Challenge: Flowers and Foliage


Art Impressions Challenge Flowers and Foliage

I am so excited to participate in the new Art Impressions challenge -Flowers and Foliage.

Art Impressions is rolling out 5 new stamps sets and I am featuring 4 of them here. The (5) new watercolor sets being released this week are Branches, Fall Set, Fir Trees, Bird Bath and Fences Die Set.

I began by cutting a mask with the Fences Die Set.  I placed it on the right side of my watercolor paper.  I inked the Bird Bath with African Violet.  I added Blue and African Violet to the water.  I used my stamp positioner to place the birds onto the bird bath.  I inked them with Sepia and added Orange and Blue from my palette.

I used the left and right flowers from the Garden Wagon Mini Set with Olive Green and Magenta around the fence along with the small grass from the Foliage set.  Once this was completely dry, I peeled off the mask and added some African Violet to the fence as shadows to give it some dimension.  I added some Wink of Stella to the birds, bird house and water.

I inked up a branch from the new Branches set with Sepia twice and stamped it in the left hand corner. I used my stamp positioner to stamp the bird house in Sepia.  I added English Red to roof using my palette.  I also added Sepia to create the wood look on the bird house and some African Violet to add some shadows.

I love all the new sets and can’t wait to see what you create with your watercolor stamps.  Won’t you join the Challenge today?

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty day!
