Friendship Cards, Just Because Cards, Miss You Cards

Hope Your Days Are Happy…

Hi there!

Today’s card is a watercolored image from Art Impressions.  I’m still new to watercolor and I thought this small sweet image had just the right amount of detail for me to feel successful.  I’m all about baby steps!

I stamped the Birdhouse Neighborhood stamp in watercolor friendly Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto watercolor paper.  The sentiment around the border of the image reads, “Hope your days are happy & life’s good & all is well in your neighborhood.”  How adorable is that?!

Uusing a small 2 round watercolor brush and Mission Mijello Gold watercolors, I took my time painting.  I didn’t mix colors, I just used them straight out of the palette.

Last month I invested in an Escoda Versatil brush which holds its teeny point impeccably (I found the travel version on Amazon for about $12).  I’m so glad that I bought this brush, it takes the frustration out of painting in teeny tiny areas and I feel like I have so much more control.  I learned about this brand and style from Lydia (@understandblue) and she highly recommended it so I’m passing on the recommendation to you 🙂

When the panel was dry, I adhered it to an A2-sized card base and called it a day.

Thanks so much for visiting!
