Handmade Cards to a New Level

In my spare time, I love to paint all kinds of shapes with watercolor paint on white cardstock. It’s sort of meditative and relaxing to paint dots, stripes, flowers, plaids, some with more than one color and some with black and red. I have an entire box full, like a treasure chest

Then I randomly cut them into strips. No ruler needed. Some are wonky. I glue them down on a piece of paper to secure them into place.

I love how they look with all those colors and shapes!

Then I get it ready to glue to a watercolor card.

I glue it and the flaps and secure it under a heavy book so it stays flat.

Here are two samples before the next step.

Using a fine point and ultra fine pint Sharpie in black, I add some details. I love how it looks. It’s rather meditative to sit and draw with a black pen. Just do it! 

Here’s the flower one

Let’s throw caution to the wind and use markers to make the colors pop! I love this look too!
