New Water Color Minis from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing one of the new release water color minis from Art Impressions.

We're also starting a new challenge...


The set I've used is called Flowering Mailbox (sku# 4607)

This is the first time I've ever water colored.  Although it was a challenge I think it came out okay.  This was actually my second attempt.  I wasn't going to share my first attempt because it most definitely has it's flaws but after thinking about it I thought it might be good for people to see how quickly you can pick it up.  You can see the other card below.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create this.  For the flowers I stamped some ink onto a CD and then spritzed water on it.  Next I dipped my stamps into it and stamped them.  The mailbox and bird were colored with the same ink but I used a water color pen to apply the ink.

This is the one that almost didn't share.  You can definitely tell that it's a first try.  Although it's not perfect I think it could be worse.
