Where Creativity Meets C9 #25

Hello everyone! It’s time for a new challenge over at Where Creativity Meets C9! This month we have a color inspiration challenge for you. Get a load of this color palette, isn’t it gorgeous?

Here’s my take on this palette:

I took one look at that palette and immediately thought of the City Stacks stamp set and those trees. Those trees! So I trimmed down some watercolor paper and stamped the trees three times to create a little forest. I masked the previously stamped trees before stamping the next line, staggering them slightly like wood planks or subway tiles. Then I stamped the skyscrapers in a pale gray ink to appear off in the distance.

I painted the scene with a combination of watercolor pencils and watercolor paints, sticking as close to the inspiration palette as possible. Specifically I used pencils from the Prima Marketing Scenic Route set of pencils, along with Sennelier watercolor paints (but mostly the pencils). I loosely painted in trees between the gaps of the stamps to complete my forest.

To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment on scrap watercolor paper, adhered it to the background with foam tape, and then adhered the panel to my A2 top-folding card base.
