Watercolor Wednesday and Old is New

  (Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you!)

Hello!  It's Old is New Day at Impression Obsession and it's also Watercolor Wednesday.  

For the first card, I followed Lydia's Abstract No-Line Watercolor Video from this week's Watercolor Wednesday.  I painted soft colors for the ground and sky.  Next, I stamped Cottontail in Fade Out Ink.  Lydia's tutorial calls for an abstract so I didn't paint back in eyes or nose.  It was a fun practice that I will try again.  Lastly, I stamped Happy Easter.


I just love the Silly Rabbit sentiment on the next card.  This was going to be my sample for Watercolor Wednesday until I realized that the sentiment was too bold for an abstract scene. I wasn't going to let the opportunity to use this super fun sentiment pass me by so I stamped Mopsie in dark ink and watercolored colored her!  As a kid, we used to say the "Silly Rabbit" quote all the time and change it for whatever circumstance applied.  My kids look at me like I am daft when I use it now but I still like to say it!  :)  


There you have it, two cards for Old is New Day, and they both fit this week's Art Nudge #54!


I hope you will stop by the Impression Obsession blog for a list of participants featuring older stamps in a fresh way! 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
