In my last post I mentioned that I would be doing a tutorial for my water color bird cards and here it is!
Here are the supplies that you will need:
- Watercolors - I just used children's Crayola washable watercolors. Nothing fancy!
- Blunt tipped paintbrush
- Fine tipped paintbrush
Both of these paintbrushes came in various craft kits belonging to my kids. Once again nothing fancy!
- Ultra Fine Tip Sharpie marker.
- White card stock - I used the Celebrations brand from Joanne Fabrics.
After cutting your card stock to your preferred card size, paint five water color blobs using your blunt tipped paintbrush.
After the blobs dry (about 2 minutes) outline them with your sharpie marker.
Go back and add the legs. I liked the way they turned out free hand vs using a ruler to make them perfectly straight. It also helped me to work from left to right to avoid smudging the marker.
Add eyes, beaks, wings, and curly tails.
Using your fine tipped paintbrush fill in the beaks.
And that's it! Enjoy your fast and mess free card making craft!
