Spring Thank You Card

This little kitty is waiting for some important mail, it seems.  Or maybe it's just a good spot to see the birds!  Either way, he seems content, perched on top of this mail box.

Stamps:  Art Impressions watercolor stamps
Other:  Watercolor paper, MFT dies, Tombow markers, watercolor brush, stamp positioner

I stamped the mailbox onto the watercolor paper, using a sepia Tombow marker to ink up the stamp.  I painted the mailbox with markers.  Using a stamp positioner, I stamped the kitty on top, painted him, then added foliage and flowers, inking the stamps with the markers, and dabbing them with some water from my brush.  

A handwritten thank you, and some die cutting and layering finish off my card today.  I am enjoying my Art Impressions watercolor stamps.  I will keep practicing, and hopefully will get better.  I think it will take some time to really get good at this technique.  In the meantime, I am having fun with them.  

I am adding my card to  The Daily Marker 30 day color challenge.  I am also adding it to:

Art Impressions Challenge - Springy cards

Stampin' Royalty Challenge - Spring

House of Cards Challenge  - Make a scene and/or colors
