Spring has finally arrived and just right around the corner is Easter. Now is the time to start working on the cards that you’d like to give this time of year. This beautiful egg shaped card is perfect for sharing the season.
Choose your first color of watercolor paint and using a moist, but not dripping wet brush add the color onto the paper in a whispy curved shape as shown in the picture. Begin by gently pressing downward on the brush to create a wide line and gently lift the pressure as you move to the end of the stroke to narrow it. The more water you have in the brush the more pastel the color will be when applied. Add the next color making sure to leave a little white space in between each color. Lay it aside to dry while you work on the next step.
Now, create a 4” x 6” card base from cardstock. Add a piece of 3 ¾” x 5 ½” piece of patterned paper (Spring Things by Doodlebug shown) to the front with a tape runner. Add tape only around the edges of the paper to hold it.
Once the paint has dried, attach the watercolor paper to the inside using the tape runner.
Add an adhesive rhinestone to the center of the flower to finish it.
Attach the flower to the corner of the card using the tape runner and finish the card by placing a sentiment on the inside.
Show your spring colors with this beautiful pastel watercolor card. They are so easy to make that you will be able to create a lot of them to brighten the day of many you know. While you are dying eggs be sure to paint some, too, and turn them into this very special card for sharing.
