I love making cards and I love painting. It's been awhile since I had painted or drew anything so I used this template that I got from Greeting Cards Galore. I used watercolor paper, 140 lb. cold press, traced my pattern (you could also use transfer paper) and painted.
I've also heard that you can put watercolor directly onto your stamps but I couldn't get it to work right. The color just went all over the paper. So if anyone knows how to do it please let me know.
