Watercolour Stamping


Hi everyone.  Day 3 of the watercolor course and we have three new techniques to try today.  I didn't get any of the techniques done from Day 2, but wanted to move on to the Day 3 lessons.  This time I chose to start with the Watercolor Stamping technique.

I have used these images a few times on card stock, stamping with ink and using second and third generation stamping to create a layered look.  This is my first time stamping onto w/c paper and using water to blend.  Love the look.

I actually made three of these images as I went along.  As Kristina mentioned in her video instruction, she learned things each time she made a card, so I tried making three as I went along, hopefully improving each time :)  This image was my third and the best of the group.  I still have a lot to learn, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Here's a close-up so you can see more details.



I only had a short time to work on the images above as Hubby and I had a field trip this afternoon, heading to Steveston for lunch and a walk along the wharf.  Beautiful sunny and warm day and it was so wonderful to look out at the water.

We had planned this a while back as I knew that after sitting for many hours in my studio for Day 1 an 2 of the class, I would need to get moving.  It was the perfect break. :)

Might be back with another card depending on how my time goes in the studio.  It's almost 5pm here, so not a lot of time left for me to play before starting dinner.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:  ATS&M #94 - CAS, and Simon Says - Spring Flowers.

Wow! You nailed this technique. Your flower pot is phenomenal! I used similar images on my card, but it took me four tries - just like Kristina! Great work!

Oh WoW! I haven't had time to even view Class 1. I love this. I've seen your other flower stamping and thought it was wonderful. Now you have the watercolor under your belt too. You really rocked this class technique, and can't wait to see if you share some more of this look. Hopefully on Friday I'll have a chance to catch up. TFS & Hugs. So glad you had a nice day out to enjoy 'together' time. Happy Mother's Day
