DIY Watercolor Birthday Card
Posted on August 30 2019
Ever have a birthday but no card? Here is a simple DIY version. You can also play around with different patterns and images. For this project, I used a folded piece of watercolor paper and the Faber-Castell Connector Paint set.
I started to overlap balloon shapes starting at the top and working my way down. Try not to use too much water BUT you want enough water where you will still get the blends between colors.
Then I used a Pitt Artist Pen to add details (outlining the balloons, drawing the strings and bow, and adding the words Happy Birthday!
