Noel! DIY Christmas Card with Watercolors

DIY Christmas Card, Car, and Christmas Tree


Hi everyone, Mou here today wishing you Happy holidays! 

My little girl and I started playing a little holiday game of our own this year - whenever we are out and about, we count the cars driving home with Christmas trees on the roof. We have several Christmas tree farms around here which means people come from far and wide and even from New York City to get their trees. I decided to draw one such car and let me show you how I did it.

Let's start by looking at the supplies:

Goldfaber Aqua Watercolor Pencils - Tin of 48

Deluxe Water Brush

Pitt Artist Pen® - Superfine - Black

Other - Watercolor paper, pencil

And now, scroll down to see my step-by-step process.

Christmas Card Sketch with Graphite Pencil

Start with a light pencil sketch of a vintage-looking car with a Christmas tree tied to the top. Next, if you like, add a Holiday themed word below it.

Blend the colors with the Deluxe water brush. Because the Pitt Artist Pen is an India ink pen, it is permanent when dry and will not smudge during wet blending.

Fill the space above the car with little circles also drawn with a watercolor pencil to finish.

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and will pull out your watercolor pencils and Pitt Artist Pens this holiday for some creative joy!
