Unique Water Color Card Creations - Published

With the help of my favorite scrapbook store, Gingham Buttons 2 in Palm Coast, Florida, I discovered another special stamping company, "Heartfelt Creations." The detail provided by these stamp sets is wonderful. Those combined with Art Impression stamps and a hand drawn background mounted on a printed card stock, create a unique and special card.

Supplies:
Scenery Builders Precut set - HCPC3459 by Heartfelt Creations
Antique Essentials Precut set - HCPC3515 by Heartfelt Creations
Art Impression stamp set UM3521
Ranger Archival Ink pad - Jet black
Tombow Markers
Water brush
Palette
140 lb. water color paper
Printed card stock paper by Graphic 45

Directions:
Print pump and bucket stamps using the ink pad on water color paper.
Print the bucket a second time on scrap of paper and cut it out.
Place the cut out bucket on the bucket printed on the water color paper.
Stamp 2 prints of the long stem flowers going beyond the bucket, creating depth.
Use makers to color all prints.
Select and draw a background fitting beyond the stamped images.
Blend marker color on palette and paint in the background images, using the water color brush.
Fill in foliage and grass with both the Art Impressions stamp set and the Heartfelt Creations scenery builder set. Run markers across the back of the stamps and print grasses and foliage.

I will be looking into more of these scenic stamps...they are fun to design compositions with!
