I watched several Youtube videos from Maremi Small Art.
She has several at the beginner level. It seemed pretty easy so I gave it a try. I chose to tape down my Cotman 140lb Watercolor paper to a piece of glass before I started. I painted my color then allowed them to dry still taped down.
I cut them down into individual art pieces measuring 3.75 x 5.00 inches and added the black lines with a permanent fine tip marker. I stamped the Christmas Greeting from the Stampin Up Good Greetings set.
I adhered the watercolor piece with double sided tape to a coordinating colored card base.
For the first one I chose a lavender card base with black spatter.
I did draw a rough outline with watercolor pencils before I started applying watercolor with a brush. I picked up this tip from another video I watched and it was a great idea.
For the card on the right I chose a ultramarine blue card base for the yellow star watercolor image.
I used the same green for the spatter then a nice red card base.
I added the hanger and string with the black marker. Then patterns onto the ornament itself.
I added copper accents to the patterns I had drawn with the marker.
I added quarter sheet inserts with a seasonal sentiment.
I have made another set of four but they have not been turned into cards yet.
This was a lot of fun but harder than the videos make it look.
