Hand Painted Cards for Pinterest Challenge

If you read my blog very often, you know I am currently into Bible Illustrating and Watercolor Resist.  In today's post, those two things collide for hand painted greeting cards.  AND it's time for the monthly Pinterest Challenge!

Here's the post that got me started on half of this journey 

Watercolor Resist Bunny Painting

For the second half of this post, I had ordered all three Bible Illustrating kits from Day Spring called

Women of the Bible

which come with a free digital file.  (I did not get paid for mentioning Day Spring, but I really do love their products)

I printed the digital files, used carbon paper to trace bits onto the cards.  Next, watercolor resist filled it wherever I didn't want the base color.  Then colored pencils were used for details.

I plan to write letters inside and then mail the cards to members of my sisterhood.

Do you have a favorite?

If you can call what I do a "technique" and you'd like to see details, here are a couple of other posts that show step by step directions.

It's fun to look back at previous posts!  I think I'm making progress!

Now let's see what the other bloggers have been up to!

  1. Very pretty and special with a personal touch, Marci.

  2. Those are beautiful. If I had to pick a favorite I'd say the yellow flower. Pinned.

  3. I love the Love card, that's my favourite although they are all lovely. The watercolour resist technique goes especially well with a pretty handwritten effect font like this.

  4. Very pretty - love the one with the white flowers!

  5. These came out really lovely. I am a big fan of projects that have the finished results look much more complicated than the actual technique, and this one fits that category!

  6. Very pretty. I'm sure the recipients will love your handmade cards.
