Winter Wonderland: Day 5
Looking to add an artistic touch to your holiday creations? Join us all this week as Heather takes us for a walk in a Winter Wonderland…
Our solid brushstroke stamps are perfect for a watercolor look, just as Heather’s done on today’s card featuring our Slapstick/Cling 40-262 Tannenbaum.
This winter scene was stamped and painted on watercolor paper starting once again with a generous amount of flicked masking fluid. After letting the masking fluid dry for at least twenty minutes I painted water onto the top three quarters of the panel leaving the area which would become foreground snow dry. I stamped the Tannenbaum stamp twice in green dye ink on the right hand side of the panel. The color bled into the water creating the “background forest”. While the paper was still damp I stamped the tree again this time on the left and then again on the right. These images have more definition. I added color to the left hand tree with markers.
To create the snow banks I worked with blue ink and water blending as I painted so that the blue became gradually lighter. When the whole panel was dry I sponged a little blue ink at the top and gently rubbed off all the masking fluid revealing “falling snow” over the scene. I added the sentiment before matting in green. This card is 4 1/2′ x 5 7/8′ to accommodate the scene created on a 5″x7″ watercolor block.
