Watercolor postcards

My big, Sophia Lopez, personally designed postcards for her best friend. It's 15 postcards with one image, and she's going to send one at a time so her best friend has to put it together into one big postcard. It's a Christian Louboutin heel and "I love you more than Louboutin heels" around it. She used watercolor paint and 15 watercolor postcards ($4/15). With time, patience, and a bit of an artsy mind, you'll be able to do it too! These postcards are a great project for a special occasion or just to keep in touch with a loved one who is miles away.

Step 1: Have your paint, cup filled with water, and 15 postcards ready. Make sure you have 1-2 hours to spare for this project.

Step 2: Pencil out your desired design.

Step 3: Start painting your design by tracing over the pencil marks with watercolored paint.

Step 4: my beautiful big! In the left picture, she's finishing up her picture (still tracing over the design with watercolored paint. The key to a great picture is to take it slow). She's super happy to be done with her postcards after 2 hours.
