I just got a box of 100 watercolor blanks with envelopes so of course it's now time to use these blanks to start sending out some watercolor paintings in swaps. I have done similar swaps in the past. So here goes. Hand made watercolor card. Paint the front write a note on the inside put your makers mark on the back. Send in an envelope. Make sure the card is done on sturdy paper. The subject matter is up to the artist. This is open to all both international and newbie alike.

I'm still new to this medium having been playing with them for less than a year. I will be using QoR watercolors which I have fallen in love with. I'd love to know about the paints you use or any tips or tricks you have as I'm always doing all I can to learn more and better my skills. Tell me about what you love about watercolors?

Be creative. Do what you can to make it something to brighten the mail of your partner. And most of all have fun!

Since it says "write a not on the inside", do you mean it should be a folded card? Or are normal postcards accepted too?

Folded card.

The above is an example of a makers mark

The pic is to lesson confusion about it. This one is mine please design your own

Can I stick the actual watercolor piece on a card instead of painting on a card from watercolor paper?

LadyCyr 01/27/2020 #

As long as its sturdy I'm ok with that

√Ālrighty, thank you!

Do we absolutely need to design a mark of our own, or would it be okay to just have it be a signature?

LadyCyr 02/ 2/2020 #

A signature is fine :) there is no stronger makers mark than your own name

What I love about watercolor is the dreaminess or ethereal qualities of the medium.
