DIY: Watercolor Stationary

15 Aug

Hi friends!  I am really excited to share this post with you today.  I designed some watercolor stationary for my sister-in-law for her birthday awhile back and I wanted to share the project with you.  This project isn’t too hard but it can take a little time to get the final product that you desire.

Materials: paper, black pen, watercolors, paint brush, cardstock and a printer

Step 1: Draw the picture you wish to paint with a black pen (or outline it in black pen after you are finished drawing in pencil).

Step 2. Paint your drawing with watercolors and let dry.

Step 3. Scan your picture into photoshop and arrange your photo the way you want it to look and add the text you would like your card to say.  Make sure your document is the exact size of the cardstock you will be printing on.  Once the document is ready, put the cardstock in your printer tray.  When you click print, go to print setup and change the settings to the size of the cardstock and click print.

Step 4. To add an extra touch to the card, you can round the edges using the directions from this post.

Step 5. This step is completely optional but I thought I would show you how I packaged the stationary that I sent to my sister-in-law.  I used a clear cellophane bag and sealed the back with cute washi tape and then wrapped the package a few times with twine.

The watercolor stationary is available for purchase as well so message me if you are interested.  My email is mgregg08@gmail.com  I can customize the text and I have a few other cute watercolor floral designs as well.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
