Watercolouring with Snow Front & Best Year Stamp Sets for FMS#482

 Hello and thx for visiting!

Today's post is a fun one - watercolouring -   Karren at Freshly Made Sketches has inspired  us with a really neat sketch.  Please click on either my card or the FMS image to go directly to their blog post.  The fabulous Snow Front and Waterfront stamp sets are retiring May 3 2021.  If you love watercolouring these two stamp sets are a must have for your collection.  Check out this project using 3 ink colours, Water Painters and Shimmery White Cardstock to create a Father's Day Card, perfect for the nature enthusiast! 

And here's the card details:

:)  Sneak Peek of a New In Colors available May 4, 2021 in the new Annual Catalogue.  Evening Evergreen is used for the evergreen tree stamp and the cardstock base, but Mossy Meadow would be equally as beautiful and it's always available as one of the Neutrals Color pack.  Mossy Meadow is listed on the supply list link at the bottom of this post. 

8 1/2 x 7 piece of new In Color Evening Evergreen Cardstock, score the 7 inch side at 3 1/2 and fold to create a Slimline card.

8 1/2 x 3 1/8 Shimmery White Cardstock.

Watercolouring 'Trix' & Assembly:

*  Using the widest Water Painter brush wet the middle section of the Shimmery White Cardstock across the full length of the card. ***Trix, I find it best to lay down a layer of water first and let it seep into the paper before I stamp so when the ink touches the paper it bleeds a bit and enhances the natural watercolour look of the stamped image.  

*  Stamp the images across the card to create a scene.  The FMS#482 Challenge inspired this horizontal scene.  I used Pear Pizzaz for the grassy section of land on the left, followed by Evening Evergreen (a sneak peek for you - it's available May 4 in the new Annual Catalogue) You could use any green you prefer, the supplies list below suggests Mossy Meadow.   The water is Balmy Blue.

***Trix, Using the two smaller Water Painters, blend the lines of the stamped image to enhance  the watercolour look.  Blend the water image to create a line similar to FMS #482 sketch.

*  Set aside to dry and then adhere to Mossy Meadow Cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  ***Trix, If the Shimmery White curls a bit as it dries simply adhere with glue, and set aside with a couple of punches sitting on top to flatten it as the glue adheres.

*  Stamp the sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink and adhere with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
