Lyrics are one of my favorite ways for creating seasonal note cards. I start humming them and it immediately gets me in the holiday mood. I started by block lettering the lyrics with the black superfine Pitt Artist Pen. These pens being permanent India ink pens, there’s no risk of smearing when the ink has dried and I can add wet color layers on top.
Draw a scroll shape to mimic a list with a pencil. Add some festive icons like a bird and stars to add some interest to the notecard. Trace over with pen. Erase pencil lines.
Use Goldfaber Aqua Watercolor pencils # 118, 176 and 158 to add colors around the scroll.
Blend the colors wet with Deluxe Water Brush.
Make some marks and add any remaining color details you like to finish the notecard.
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy notecard tutorial for the Holidays!
