Watercolor Notecards: Foxes, Moons, and Trees

I have been really loving playing around with watercolors lately. The fact that I can apply the paint so imprecisely but still get beautiful results totally speaks to my style of crafting, lol. The small pieces of art lend themselves perfectly to notecards, so I made these for a few recent swaps.

Two moons (based on this tutorial):

Pine trees (tutorial):

And foxes (both rainbow and non, based on this tutorial):

And a couple bonus moon paintings I haven’t turned into cards (yet). The crescent moon came out a little strange. I love the full moon, but the blobby background is a little nebulous. I might have to cut away some of the non-uniformness…

Anyway, I’m having a lot of fun and learning lots! Some of @jemimah’s class tips came in handy while working on these! :heart:

Thanks for looking!

All the fun you’re having is turning into really striking finished works! Those last moons are my favorites and make me think of the Solstice challenge. Ahem.

Please consider some watercolor wonders for that! :upside_down_face:

Oh! I forgot the full moon tute! Maybe someday I’ll make something without training wheels…:sweat_smile:
