A good friend of mine sent me an Art Impressions watercolor stamp set for my birthday and I’m playing with it today. WOW, what fun, and so darn easy. I have my very old Stampin UP markers (water based), which still work wonderfully. I used the markers to color on the stamp itself, then I stamped it onto water color paper (Canson XL). Using water and a paintbrush, I ‘pulled’ and moved the color from the stamped image leaving this beautiful watercolor finish. This card only used a few stamps: the barn, the tree, the pink and purple flowers (tiny), and grass (tiny), and of course the sentiment. I really felt this could be a good masculine card: Father’s Day or birthday but for me this sentiment was more useful. Once my simple watercoloring was done I just mounted with foam tape, complimentary card stock on both top and bottom of the final image. I just love how this turned out and it was so easy! If you haven’t experimented with Art Impression Stamps, I highly recommend them.
I’ll be submitting this to the following challenges:
- CASology – Week 303 Farm
- Penny Black & More – In the Garden
- SSS Monday Challenge – All Things Bright and Beautiful
