DIY - Watercolor Business Card

Hello again!  I have been MIA and haven't been updating this blog since I first published it.  This blog is basically still under construction.  So please bear with me.

I used 300 gms/150 lbs Rough watercolor paper.

                                              5 mini bowls with clean water and clean brushes.

 I then applied clean water on  the edge of the paper.  It's up to you how far you want your color to run in your paper.  For me I like it just on the edge and being careful not to touch the characters with water.  Or else, that would bleed too.  I like holding the paper instead of laying it on the surface.  That way, it wouldn't affect the informations I have at the back of the card.

 Use the brush with your personal choice of color to apply on the paper.  Remember to just dab the brush and make sure you mix thicker color on your palette.  Watercolor tends to lighten when it dries.

Let the excess water drip on a paper towel.

And we are done!  Check out the back of the business card, it's clean. :)
