A SCENIC CARD-INSIDE AND OUT

Art impressions are having a Stamp a Scene Challenge.  For this card I decided to a use the Cottage and Die set.I began by stamping the image with Marvy Sepia.  I die cut the widow and door.  Then I watercolored the image using Marvy Markers.  Then I made an A2 card out of Watercolor paper.  I drew around the cottage, cut out the door and window and created an outdoor scene using WC Flower Set 2, the tree is from the  Covered Bridge Set.  The grass and foilage are from WC Foilage set 1.  After I finished the background I adhered the cottage to the front of the card.  Then I stamped and watercolored the inside image using the Make a Wish Set

WOBBLING METALLIC BIRDHOUSES

Over the weekend I went to an art store and purchased a set of Gansai Tambi Starry Color water colors.  I had been wanting to try these for some time.  I began by inking a few branches from the new Art Impressions WC set.  I inked the stamps with Marvy Marker Sepia.  I stamped the branches on the edges, then i softened them with a wet paint brush.  Next, I painted the tiny leaf stamp from Foilage Set 2 with the metallic paints.  I randomly added the leaves to the branches.  I also painted a gold border around the square.  I watercolored the sky with a Zig Clean Color Marker.  Then I stamped, colored and fussy cut some birdhouses and a bird from the Bird Bath Set.  I attatched the birdhouses with a mini action wobble, that I cut down. The sentiment is from the Garden Window Mini Try Fold Set.   The ribbon is DL.ART Chalk White
I am entering this into the latest Art Impressions Challenge Jiggle A Little

NEW ART IMPRESSION WATERCOLOR SET

Yesterday I received my Art Impressions order.  I ordered the new Water color Bird Bath Set. I also bought the Window die.  To create this card I started by cutting out the window in brown paper-then i adhered it to some wood grained Paper Studio paper.  I colored the inside of the window with a yellow Marvy marker and added a floral stripe to look like wallpaper.  Then I glued this piece to a piece owater color color paper.  I stamped the grass and bushes using the original foilage stamps.  I added some flowers from the flower set 2.  I thought the window looked bare so i water colored a kitty from the hWC Cats set.  I am entering this as my second entry into the Flowers and Foilage Challenge.  Since my order they have released a WC Dog set-it is at the top of my new list.
