Simple Hand Painted Rainbow Watercolour Hearts Mini Slimline Card Tutorial


Thank you so much for joining me for this Simple Hand Painted Rainbow Watercolour Hearts Mini Slimline Card Tutorial, Let's jump right in.


I cut down my cardstock 6x6 inches and scored at the 3-inch mark for the base, a black matte 1/8th of an inch smaller than my base and a piece of cold press watercolour cardstock to 1/8th of an inch smaller than my black matte. I did a quick pencil sketch of how I wanted my hearts laid out and then erased the lines until they were very faint.


I chose a rainbow order of Karin watercolour Brushmarker pros and laid down a layer of clean clear water in the heart then added the colour and moved it around until I was happy, I made sure every heart overlapped so that the colours would mix and create a fun watercolour look. I worked through each heart adding water and colour until I was happy. I did struggle a bit with the red and pink heart as red pigments like to take everything over but I think it turned out pretty in the end.


For some finishing touches, I drew sketchy lines over the hearts to give them a bit more definition, splattered on some Perfect Pearls for added shimmer and shine and brought in some Silver Cyrstal Glitter drops and added them on each heart as a Highlight, then called this card done. I am super happy with how it turned out and I hope you will give this card a shot!!


In side news, I opened my Etsy shop this weekend!! I have a discount code in case anyone wants to order some of my Chunky Floral Alphabet stickers. The Code is THANKYOU10 I hope you will give my shop a look and let me know what you think of the stickers!!
