Welcome to class! This is an intermediate technique class….it relies on using stamps! The class uses a number of stamp sets to create all the projects in 5 lessons. If you already have sets that are very similar to the ones shown, you can substitute a similar set you have and decide later if you want to purchase the stamp to create the same project as shown in the video.
Stamps come and go and get discontinued, but knowing the history of Art Impressions over the years, I trust there will always be new stamps that could be replacements for any used in this class.
In this lesson are links to the supplies I am using in class videos. Compensated affiliate links are used, which means if you make a purchase I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. I truly appreciate your support toward the costs of this class! Read more.
This section has two videos, one showing the stamps, paper, brush, and blocks, and the second discusses markers.
The markers used in this and other Stamped Watercolor classes on this site are the set of 20 Tombow markers shown on the conversion chart. However you can use other brands if desired! Know that results may be different – however, every time the same stamp and markers are used, they STILL come out completely different, so that’s very normal! 🙂

Stamp Positioning Options
The demonstration for this class are done with a MISTI or miniMISTI in the first step (usually):
However – here are two examples of ways to align stamps without one; here’s an older video of mine using the edge of blocks to align stamps:
And Bonnie uses the Art Impressions Stamp Positioner in this video, I’ve started the video at 7:00 where she begins talking about the positioner:
