Watercolor Notecards

Hello!  I hope your New Year's celebration was all you hoped it could be.  We took a little vacay and went to Monterey, CA for a couple of days.  We visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium and it has changed quite a bit since our last visit.  We also went over to Carmel By the Sea and took the 17 mile drive.  We really enjoyed that and were able to stop and spend a little time at Pebble Beach Golf Course.  Hubby was sure wishing he had his golf clubs with him.  :)

Today I am sharing a very simple notecard project that uses minimal supplies making it quick and easy.


I started by gathering some Fabriano Notecards in two colors, green and peach.  Next I grabbed a couple of stamps, a spray bottle of water, a small ink pad and some Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  Pictured above are four of the six Dual Brush Pens that I used.


For the green set, I inked up the stems of the flowers with #192 Asparagus and #249 Hunter Green and for the flowers I used #676 Royal Purple and #725 Rhodamine Red. Next, I spritzed the stamp 2-3 times and then stamped directly onto the notecard.  I held the stamp for the count of 10 to allow the ink colors to soak into the watercolor paper just a bit.  Allow the ink to dry and stamp sentiment in coordinating color.


The peach cards were created in the same manner as above.  The Dual Brush Pens used were:  #192 Asparagus and #249 Hunter  for the stems and #533 Peacock Blue and #535 Cobalt Blue.


When finished, the notes can be tied up with a pretty ribbon and tucked into a cello bag. The notes would be a perfect little gift for someone special.
