Good Wednesday morning. I have another Art Impressions to share with you today and it has lots and lots of purple. I had to laugh as I was working on this project because I heard Julie say on her Hello Monday Live that purple was her least favorite color. It’s one of my favorites but I think I may have gotten a little carried away with it on my floral scene,
I placed my watercolor paper in my Mini MISTI and set the stamp in place. Then I applied Hickory Smoke and Chipped Sapphire to the watering can using Distress markers and stamped the image. I used a small brush to pull the ink out of the lines to shade the watering can. I cut a mask and cover the can so I could protect it while I stamped the foliage and flowers.
I used a Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet and Mowed Lawn Distress markers to apply ink to the flowers and foliage. I tried to follow along with the picture on the front of the Watering Can package but I just carried away. I kept adding and adding until I knew I had added too much. So to try and solve the problem…..I added some more. LOL! Do any of you have this problem with your projects? I lightly touched all the flowers and foliage with a damp brush to soften the images. I removed the mask and stamped some foliage to appear flowing down over the can and stamped the grass image around the ground area. I just wasn’t satisfied with all that green grass so I added some soft purple flowers all around and sent my project even further over the top. What can I say! I’m a more is more kind of girl!
I would like to invite you to join me in the CLASSroom for my Bench Scene and step by step tutorial.
