Nellie – Art Impressions

I absolutely love Art Impressions Front & Back Stamps. This particular stamp used is called Nellie. She’s just a very happy and southern looking girl.

This stamp is so versatile, I’m able to use it for Birthdays, Mother’s Day or even a simple ‘Thinking of You’ kind of card.

To color in this stamp I’ve been using the watercolor technique with Tom Bow markers and a watercolor paint brush from Art Impressions. I simply swipe my preferred color marker on a watercolor palette and pick up the color with the watercolor paint brush that has been a little wet. Then I would just color away.

Once I worked my way to the inside of the ‘kitchen’ room on the inside of the card I put some of the color brown for the floor painted inside but then went over with more water to spread it out to give a more fluid look for the ‘floor’.

I loved how the card turned out!
