Fourth of July patriotic water color card tutorial
I started with my card front 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.
I sketched out a box in the top left hand corner that was 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches
Using a red water color paint, I painted 4 stripes leaving 3 white in between. They are about 1/4 inch wide.
I then skipped about 1/4 inch then did three more red lines. I then used some little tree stamps and stamped them at the bottom. Making sure that some of the trees covered the bottom of the "flag"
I then used some blue water color paint to paint the left hand corner.
I then splattered the "flag" with red and blue water color paint.
I then took black paint and painted over the trees and the bottom to make the trees look like silhouettes.
I made it mixed media by splattering white acrylic paint for the stars and I took red colored pencils and doodled on the red lines.
I finished it off by doodling with a white gel pen.
I was inspired by post on Pinterest HERE.
