Watercolor Sitting There

One of my customers, Judy, has been asking me to do a watercolor class with the stamp set, Sitting Here.  She fell in love with it the minute she saw it in the annual catalog.  Our schedules finally lined up and I had the class last Saturday.  

When I saw this card on Pinterest, created by Stampin with Sandi,  I knew this was a great card to teach how to do shading on and around the swing and the flower pot.  I used the tree from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set for the leaves of the tree.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Marina Mist Card Stock #119682

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock #141418

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Watercolor Paper #122959

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I have found that the best adhesive to attach the Watercolor Paper is to use the Fast Fuse Adhesive.  Your Watercolor paper will be bent a little bit because of the water.  By using the Fast Fuse adhesive, on the edge of the paper, it will hold it down and lay flat. 

Judy was so happy with how her card turned out.  I was so glad she liked this card and had fun making it.

Have a terrific Friday and weekend!

Wish I could've gotten in on the class! I have this set--love swings!--but have never inked it up! Love your watercoloring on it and the leaves across the top.

This is the first time I had used this set too. I don't know why I haven't used it before. I will use it more offen. Have a great day!

Vicki Hill

Just beautiful. I am losing a dear friend of 35 years to cancer. I pulled out this set not 10 minutes ago. Hope you don't mind me casing a bit of it. I've just sat here staring at it as my mind is elsewhere.

Thanks for sharing it! Glad I found it. Vicki

I am so sorry to hear about your friend. I will be praying for peace for her, her family and friends. I would love for you to CASE any part of my card. That is the biggest compliment you can give me. This card is very peaceful to me. I am actually thinking of doing a picture of this to hang in my craft room.
Have a great day and thank you for stopping by my blog.
