Watercolor Fall Note Cards ...

Good morning! I have been creating Watercolor Note cards for a special lady, and decided to add some Fall cards to the collection, and these Great Impressions Stamps were perfect.

First up is the lovely Harvest Cart (H219) ...


Next up is the super FUN Happy Pumpkins (G383) ...


Using my Marvy Markers I applied ink to each of the stamps and stamped them on Watercolor Paper. Then I use a paintbrush and applied water to the stamped image. Once done with the outline of the image, I applied several different colors from my Marvy Markers collection on a palette and proceeded to color in the images.

Once I was done, I layered them with 3D Foam Tape onto my Papertry Ink Vintage Cream cardstock.

As you can see on the second card I signed and dated the card on the front. I will also do this with the first card. The person receiving them likes seeing my signature on the cards I watercolor.

If you haven't heard of Great Impressions Stamps make sure you hop on over to the Store to check them out. There are so many AWESOME stamps to play with, and all of the Accessories you need to create your projects with!!! I hope you'll check out our Monthly Challenge, and if you use Great Impressions Stamps make sure you also link up to our Customer Gallery.

I really love how these turned out and hope you do also.

You did a wonderful job on both of these cards! I love how you combined markers with water. The look you achieved is stunning and gave your images such great depth and dimension. I like them both so much and each scene that you created brought to mind happy Fall and Halloween memories. These were a joy to see and I'm so glad you shared them with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
