Fenced Watercolor Garden

Good Tuesday morning.  I had so much fun over the weekend creating a tree and garden scene with my Art Impressions Watercolor Flower and Watercolor Foliage stamps.   I had a small piece of watercolor paper left over on my desk so I used it with the flower and foliage sets to make the simple garden scene for my project today.

I stamped the green foliage all the way across the paper to create a base for my garden.  I used several colors of distress ink to stamp the different flower images to fill in the garden. I used a damp brush to lightly touch the flowers and foliage to soften the images to appear more like they were watercolored.  I heat set the scene and then lightly sponged yellow ink to brighten the scene.  I may have gotten a little too heavy handed with the yellow as it sort of distorted the colors but I still like it.

I layered the scene over green cardstock and then attached the fence and grass border with mounting tape.  There was just too much blank space on the card base so I added the scalloped border to help anchor the scene. I added the three tiny orange butterflies for the finishing touch.

I have ordered almost all of the Art Impressions scene building stamps from Ellen and can hardly wait for them to arrive.  I think it will be lots of fun to incorporate stamped watercolor scenery and images with die cut images. 

Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day. 

PS  I'm having a little trouble moving the stamps, dies and accessories that I used for today's project to the top of my links list so you'll need to scroll down past my regular supply list to find them.

  1. I loved your tree and garden scene from the other day and love this one just as much! I really like how you use Distress Inks for your coloring! So very pretty!

  2. So glad to see you using Art Impressions watercolor stamps. I bought almost all the sets last year. I am addicted to your cards and giving me more inspiration. This is such a good idea.
