Hello, it’s Gaylynn. Today, I am sharing a vintage watercolor holiday card with a mail or postage theme.
Using light colors and accents, this vintage watercolor holiday card came to life.
Sentiment: Making spirits bright. Let your heart be light.
I share a video tutorial for this project and technique.
In summary, here are helpful tips for making a vintage watercolor holiday card. To begin, stamp using waterproof ink onto watercolor paper. Also, mask the envelopes to make a cascading look to them. Next, prepare an A2 card base from colored cardstock. Then, make a palette of desired colors for your project. I blended some of the colors together to get the hues that I wanted. Then, using a wet paint brush, carefully add touches of color, one section at a time. Once finished, heat set or leave out to dry completely. Finally, adhere the panel onto the card base, with added gems or embellishments, to finish.
Here is another look.
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day.
