How to make a Winter Wonderland card with watercolor and calligraphy


welcome back to Candy’s Art World
I’m Candy and today we’re going to make a winter card Christmas card whatever
you like get to be and make a wintery scene on the front of the card using
wet-on-wet technique to blend out blues into purples on the sky I’m trying a new
technique with the water colors a new for me where I put salt on the
watercolor and while it’s still wet to try to get a nice crisp cold feeling to
this to the air make it feel cold like frosty sky I was trying to get it to dry clickers I
use the calligraphy book to fan it and for that the snowy hills grams I
decided to use a little bit of light purple and a little tiny bit of blue and
just to give the the snowy hills a little bit more texture to it and I riff didn’t some just some little
trees that have no leaves and I used kind of a mixture of blues and purples
to help try to make it look pretty distant here I’m adding a little bit of the blue
to the to the hilltop and kind of blending it out with the purple still leaving some white of the paper I’m trying to dry it quick with the
clerk a free book again I’m trying to knock off the
the salt that I had put on there I used just old paintbrush to try and
get the salt off the work ended up smearing the trees a bit when I was
doing that but I don’t think it hurt the look of it account kind of made it look like maybe
there was some snow falling still with that that salt that I had on there it’s taped that music for this card I
had used on a previous previous project I try and reuse the tape as much as I
can because it takes a little bit of the stickiness off and I have less tearing
up the paper when I reused tape and still use some brand new tape so I just
reused this this set of tape I’m flipping it over and I am taping it down
that way I can get a better view of where I want the words to be and it helped let the the front of it
completely dry a little bit flatter because it was trying to be a little bit
buckled I’m putting in the grids now to help me
space out my letters and stuff and I wanted I wanted the their word
winter to be centered on the page so I counted spaces for to make it to where I
would have the the same amount of space on either side I’m using the largest nib that I got in
was set from 5 and below with Blanton black ink and I decided to go over it twice to
make the income or black or darker after the ink dries your erase all your
lines and try really really hard to get that
lined up really really well before you crease the card and I just used my ruler I hope you enjoyed watching please like
