Cozy Cottage Watercolor card

Cozy Cottage stamp set is nestled way in the back of the Occasions Catalog. Have you seen it? I find myself coming up with so many ideas for these beautiful stamps but today are featuring the tiny chairs and lovely sentiment. There is a very large image that’s fantastic! My kids have sat and watched me color this stamp set, and for them to sit… that’s a big deal 🙂

Watercoloring a small image

Creating a project with lots of white space is the essential element to create a clean and simple styled card. Deciding where to put that white space is a very frequent question I receive.  I started this project with a small piece of watercolor paper and my Aqua Painter. I used ink from the lid of my Lemon Lime Twist and Pear Pizzazz stamp pads. The chairs image is stamped in Soft Suede ink and then quickly I added clear embossing powder to heat set. By embossing this image, it has trapped the brown color under a protective layer. Now I can add as much green color as I like and not disturb the chairs!
