Have you been admiring all these beautiful watercolor cards – especially ones that form scenes and you just don’t know how to get started? Rubeena has one tip for you: just start and continue to practice!
Hello! Rubeena here as Creative Contributor for another post using Sweet Stamp Shop stamps. I wanted to share how I create some basic watercolor scenes using critters. Sweet Stamp Shop’s newest release Pug Life is an absolutely adorable set!
I started off by stamping the pug bodies and faces on watercolor paper and used watercolors to color them. I fussy cut them and set them aside. It’s a good idea to stamp a lot of them if you want to create multiple cards easily. You could use them all together and have a pug party or a few at a time. 🙂
The basics of a scene are a sky and ground. You can use grass dies if you don’t want to create your own grassy look. You can cut them from green cardstock or color white cardstock yourself. On the left card, I simply dabbed some green watercolors to give off an impression of grass. I’m no artist, so I keep it simple. I added some blue watercolors in a similar fashion but left a lot of white areas for clouds.
Here’s a closer look at the card. As you can see, it was quite simple. You can get more creative, of course. You get better at coloring the more you do it.
I simply adore the sentiments in this set. Fun puns and cute pugs! If you love dogs, this set is for you 🙂
