I am so pleased to join the Watercolor Guest Design team for this week’s Watercolor Weekend. We are showcasing some of the Art Impressions watercolor stamp new releases.
I am showcasing the new WC Fir Trees Set. This set is going to be a staple in your watercolor tools. It is so versatile.
Here are the details of my project.
I used Sepia to ink up the smaller trunk and stamp it a few times, I re-inked it and stamped it a few more times. I used the straight fir leaves and inked them in Pine Green and Olive Green to get some color variation. I inked the top of the fir in Pine Green and stamped it below the trees.
Using my watercolor palette, I created the water using Blue, Manganese and African Violet.
I then added the large tree with the bigger tree trunk. Again, I added Pine Green and Olive Green to the large fir branch to create a full look. I then used my palette to add Sepia to the ground and added grass with the Olive Green. To finish off I added some Blue to the sky.
I cut the scene down to 3 3/4 x 5. I mounted it on a piece of Gina K Designs Blue Denim cardstock trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4. I then mounted this to the Gina K Designs Asparagus card base.
I just love all the new releases and hope you can join us this weekend! Try out the new challenge over at the Art Impressions Blog.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a crafty day.
