NEW VIDEO - Wooden Chair Watercolor

Hello Ai Fans!

Time to continue with our NEW products in our Watercolor Wednesday videos! Bonnie shows off our latest Mini Project, the Wooden Chair Set! This set is perfect to mask a container or critter resting on the seat. She used the flower pot in the set to stamp first, then created a mask using a sticky note. From there, set the scene with our WC Flower 2 Set, Foliage Set and color from your WC Palette. For the final touch, use your favorite from our WC Birds Set and have him rest on the top of the chair. Don't forget to sign your work!

We hope you enjoy our latest video! Make sure to subscribe to our channel to be notified when new uploads are available. If you liked what you say, hit the "thumbs up" button to let us know!

Happy Watercolor Wednesday!

Gone Fishing by Dana Warren

Hello AI Fans!!

Dana, here with a one layer circle card! Ok, technically it's not one layer as my card base and colored image are actually two pieces! BUT,  I wanted to hide the back side of the coloring panel, you really don't want your recipient to see it when they open the card, do you?!?!

To create a circle card I first cut a circle from white cardstock. Then I scored some white card stock and placed the circle die on top. The die is just a tiny bit above the scored top, this will create the fold.

Next, I stamped the little floating dog from Reel Great Guys stamp set. Then I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers to color him. I used AB1, AB2, AP1, AP2, BG2, BG2, BT1, CR11, EB1, EB2, EB4.

I stamped the gone fishing just above the dog and then adhered the circle to the circle card base. To make the card stand I just trimmed a little bit from the bottom. Otherwise, I kept it pretty simple, figured this would be perfect for a guy and they don't need a lot of sparkle or embellishments!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Happy Stamping!!

Dancing Easter Tots by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I adore everything about Easter colours - they're so fresh & pretty, and after a long winter like this one, they're a welcome change.  I am using the sweet Dancing Easter Tots (Sku #T4019) today:
 I blended six different distress inks onto my card base, then sprayed it with some Tattered Angels shimmer mist that gives a wonderful shimmer to the background, as well as some lovely texture from the moisture of the mist.  I ran a line of stitching 1/4" in from the edge with my sewing machine to frame the image.  After colouring with Copic markers, I fussy cut around the image, and used pop dots to adhere it to the base for a little dimension.  I had these wonderful pastel sequins that perfectly matched my inks so I sprinkled a few of those on as well.
 The sentiment is from Celebrate Spring MTF (Sku #4849).  Here is a shot to show how much the background glimmers:
 There are all kinds of sweet Easter stamps in the Ai store, you can find them all here.  Happy stamping!
Copics used: C3, C1, BV02, BV00, E11, E00, E000, E51, E51, E34, E31, R20, R81, BG11, B35, E57, E55, E53, YG01.
