Art Impressions Watercolor--First Post for Design Team

Hello!  I am so excited and thrilled beyond words to be making my first post as an Art Impressions Design Team member!!!  I also have this over on Art Impressions blog.  Click over there and sign up to get their blog post notifications so you see all the wonderful inspiration from the other design team members.

For my first post, I thought it very fitting to use a few of my watercolor stamps (yep, I have quite a lovely collection of them!)   I live in an area that is fortunate to have two of the big crafts shows nearby and Art Impressions is at both!  I watched Bonnie Krebs demo in their booth and for the longest time thought that I could never do that!  Finally, in 2015, I took an Ai watercolor class at the Scrapbook EXPO and was totally hooked!!!  If you watch Bonnie's videos and hear her say, "you can do this", it's true!!!!  Go to their YouTube and find some of the earlier videos--anyone can do this!!  Can you tell I'm a fan?  LOL!

I created a circular card and died some ribbon to get a perfect match!


Here's how I died the ribbon.  Scribble your marker, spritz with a bit of water, and dunk it in.  I blotted this one onto a paper towel to lighten the intensity of the color.  Let it dry and it's ready to use.


Thank you so much for taking a look at my very first post for Art Impressions!  I can't wait to share my creations using their other fabulous stamps!
