The front image is Art Impressions Wooden Gate 4762. There is a great video tutorial here that I used for my inspiration. I used Marvy LePlume II markers for the water color portion: #8 (violet), #45 (sepia), #72 (pine green), #86 (African violet), #100 (sapphire blue). I also used Copic marker Y17 (golden yellow) for the beak on the bird that is standing on the ground. The bird perched on the gate is from Stamps by Judith and Heather, AAA-277 Chickadee. It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Marvy #45 sepia. (I scribbled a little marker on an acrylic block and diluted it with a few drops of water, then used a damp paint brush to color the bird.)
The frame around the image was made with the largest die from Spellbinders A2 Fancy Weave Card Creator set.
The patterned paper is from the Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea collection.
Inside I used stamps from two Gina K. Designs sets: Vertical Greetings and Simply the Best. The text was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the dragon flies and foliage in Peacock Feathers Distress ink. The inside patterned paper is also from the Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea collection.
These mini water color sets from Art Impressions are great fun – you should try them for yourself!
