The sweet Garden Charmers stamp set from Penny Black has a pretty bird and lots of beautiful flowers – I’ve combined one of the clusters of flowers with the bird to create a 5″ x 5″ watercolored scene – with clouds! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

No-Line Watercolor Mothers day Flowers

Mother’s Day is around the corner – but this stamp could be used for the holiday, or combined with any stamp set to create a card for any time! I used Avery Elle pigment inks to stamp with; if your stamp only has red flowers, you can use red to stamp with – mine had flowers and leaves, so a yellow (mimosa) made the most sense for mine. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I nearly discarded the outside frame – then realized I had actually centered it well (which is rare!) so I tossed some loose watercolor on it and adhered both down to the card. So simple and pretty – and no waste!

Watercolor a dog park

Watercolor a dog park

 

My life is one trip to the dog park after another. Can anyone relate? Having two energy-filled puppies means playing hard is required every day, so we alternate between an hour of hard running at the park or an hour and a half walk around our neighborhood. So today’s card is inspired by those daily adventures!

For today’s video I combined two MFT stamp sets to create a little scene; the little girl in the stamp set had a glass of lemonade in her hand, but I masked her hand out behind one of the pups so she could just be standing with all the doggies. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The card is finished off with a dotted die from Avery Elle and mounted on brown cardstock, with a little twine just for fun.

Art Impressions Watercolor in the MISTI

Note: All Art Impressions stamps are 15% off this week – #justsayin!

Several folks asked what I would do with this little girl stamp….well let’s see, shall we?

Art Impressions Watercolor in the MISTI

For a lot of AI watercolor, a MISTI is overkill – when you’re just adding lots of little flowers, you want to move the stamps around. But with a large image, like in the “sets” you can get, sometimes using the MISTI makes it all a bit easier. At the end of the watercoloring process, stamping a few select outlines again really helps sharpen everything up! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Isn’t she sweet? I used her for a couple Easter cards this year, too – just painted eggs in her basket and hid some under the bushes!

YT Live Sunday 2pm Pacific

I tried broadcating YT Live last week, and that didn’t go so well….my phone and YT weren’t on speaking terms. I’m going to try it again this weekend, so if you have questions about the new site or anything, that’ll be a perfect time to ask. Just go to my YouTube page and refresh a time or three. (Or four. It took ten minutes worth of tries before I gave up last week!) If it doesn’t work on YouTube, open another tab and hop over to Facebook, and I’ll chat on the artclassesdotcom page.

This stamp set is called “My Favorite Thing” – so why not use my favorite medium? Well my favorite for today. Because ask me tomorrow and it might be different. I love to color with #allthethings! 🙂

My favorite thing (today): watercolor

After showing you how to put together a palette in my recent video – today you can watch how I use the palette…I’m trying something new to figure out how to show you what I’m doing to mix colors, and it took twice the amount of editing time, but I hope this helps. (I may not be able to do this often but might try on occasion!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The footage was zoomed in for the little boy stamp, so don’t think the palette shown was tiny! lol.
