Whimsical Watercolor Houses

Hello friends!  Carmen here stopping by from Serendipity Studio to share my very first post with RubberMoon Stamps.  So exciting!  

I'm lovin' my new stamps and how versatile they are to use on different papers, canvases and mediums.  For my first go round I decided to do a watercolor painting using Strathmore Watercolor Paper cold press 5.5" x 8.5".  I used a standard watercolor set and a set of Pro Arte Artists brushes in sizes #8, #6 and #2 for the details.

I used Ranger Archival Ink for the stamping.  The stamps went on evenly and smoothly, no spaces!  I love that!

The doodle trees, pathways and grass were created using Micron Pen .03 mm.

The images of the houses and dangle hearts are the perfect size for adding watercolor and being able to give them dimension by adding more/or less water and color.

The stamps that I used were:

Crooked Chimney House db4793

Row House db4452

Here is a brief video of this creative process...

I plan on framing this piece and displaying it in my studio.  Thanks so much friends for letting me visit with you today.  Remember to come back often to see what the other members of the RubberMoon Design Team are up to.
