Art Impressions Watercolor Card (Memories of Stark NH)

I got more Art Impressions Watercolor stamps.  I chose 2 of the sets, because I wanted to try using the Church and the Bridge, since the two together reminded me of the Church and Covered Bridge in Stark NH.

Stark NH is a very picturesque tiny town in northern New Hampshire.  I have not been there is a while, and did this card based on my memory of what it looked like.  After I was done, I found some pictures I had taken, and I was close with my representation (google Stark NH for some really great photos of the area).

Making this card, I needed to first try to reverse the image of the church.  I had never done this before, and found that I could stamp the image on my rubber impression pad I use with my Cuttlebug, and then place the paper over the image.  This made the lines of the church slightly darker than I wanted, but I went with it anyway.

To make the card I used the following:
Art Impressions - EZ Project C (Bridge), WC Structures (Church), WC Tree Set, Foliage Set, Flower Set
Distress Markers - Old Paper, Forest Moss, Tumbled Glass, Picked Raspberry, Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet, Vintage Photo, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Pine Needles, Pumice Stone.

This card was entered in the Art Impressions Challenge 192 Watercolor Stamping
