Watercolor Inspiration

Sunday, May 12, 2013


Today is Mother's Day!  I had to go to work for awhile today, but I still found time to play. I was inspired by a gorgeous stamped scene that Shari Carroll made with these Claudine Hellmuth stamps.  I first saw it about a year ago. She did an entire street scene in watercolor. I only did a few elements, but I really enjoyed playing with different watercolor mediums.  I found that I like water coloring with the Ranger distress inks the best.  They're sooo easy to use. (note lesson #1:  Shari Carroll is much better with watercolor than I am!)

I am linking this to the Simon Says Stamp and Show "Inspired by" challenge.  Thanks for the inspiration Shari! I am also linking this to the Moxie Fab World "The Wonder of Watercolor Challenge".  As well as the Twisted Tuesday Free for All.
