Watercolor and ink Christmas card.

baubles2I like to send out Christmas cards which I have made and this year was no exception.

Here’s how I made them.  Watercolor paint in ‘permanent rose’ and white ink (I got mine from our local art store where they mix their own inks – South City Art Supply) is all I used to paint the circles to form the baubles.  img_9189

I painted very wet circles and dropped on a single drop of ink when they were still wet.

Once they were dry, I used a Pigma Micron black pen size 05 to draw in the details.

Then I scanned the whole thing and cropped and added text in Photoshop.  You could also photo your decorations and use an app to add text.  Of course if you have lovely hand lettering skills, you can hand write the lettering.

There is a little video here on my Instagram feed – catseatdogsmakes.

Don’t forget to share if you have a go!

Happy Painting and Happy Wednesday x
