Beautiful Day


It is Sunday, which means it is time for a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  This week we are having a theme challenge, and looking for cards featuring watercolor.


This week we are sponsored by Inspired By Stamping.  They are offering a $15 credit plus free shipping (in the US) to one random participant.

For me this week, I went with a really simple card, pulling out some Arts Impression Stamps (using several of their watercolor sets) and some watercolor markers.  I am still crafting while moving, and instead of worrying about carrying my watercolor pallets, I realized I had some room in my copic markers carrying case, so my watercolor markers ended up there.  I am not particular to any particular brand of watercolor marker, using Distress, Spectrum Aqua, Windsor and Newton, Tombow as well as Mermaid Markers and Kai.  Like I said, I really am not particular and choose my markers mostly by the color I want.  I also wanted a simply sweet sentiment, so I pulled out an Altanew stamp set and stamped out both the sentiment and birds from it.  I trimmed down the watercolor paper and adhered it to an A2 frame.

    • I ♥ Art Impressions’ stamps, PERFECT choice for watercolor! I’m addicted to their videos on Youtube. Nice finishing touches with the shadowing on the ground and the little birdies. Super card EK!
