ART IMPRESSIONS CHALLENGE #180




It's been a while since I have played in an Art Impressions Challenge. I'm skidding in on the tail end of this one! Better late than never! 
The challenge is to create something using watercolors and adding a touch of white with a pen. You can see all the wonderful designs and get the details here on the Ai Challenge Blog.


Here is my first try.
Ai has MANY wonderful tutorials and great tips for creating beautiful scenes.
 When Bonnie or Kate say, "you just need a little water"...it's so true!


Next attempt!
I have used Zig WC Brush Markers and colored directly onto the stamps.
Less water is definitely better!


I got brave on this one and tried masking a few of the pots.
I have had so much fun experimenting with all the different stamps that Ai has for watercoloring. 
Thanks for looking!

    1. Thank you! Art impressions has recently changed some of the watercolor sets but, I believe these are all still available. Try looking at 4111-WC Containers and 4271-WC EZ Project A. There are so many wonderful WC tutorials from Ai...have fun!

    1. Zig Watercolors were used and for adding small touches of white I used a Sharpie Extra Fine Point marker. Thank you, hope that helps!
