Printed roses cards

I am drowning in a sea of glitter today, because I am  doing some Christmas gift wraps for a photo shoot (and it's still September!)

My post today is about something else though.... just about the easiest card you could make and all you need is a box of watercolour pencils (artists' grade is best) and a printed graphic

I printed off this lovely vintage roses graphic here on the Graphics Fairy site

and basically coloured the roses in using a small round brush and watercolour pencils

dip the brush in water and stroke it across the pencil lead to pick up the colour, and paint the roses. Try blending colours and adding some red to the leaves to add to the overall effect

 It's not a good idea to ever put the pencil in to the water or the lead may break, and don't use a pencil with a wet lead to draw directly on to paper or card.

and that's it - easy and quick cards

Have a great day
