Are you as excited for Easter as I am?
The baskets, the bunnies and the Easter egg hunt!  
Way too much fun!
 
Last week I taught a Mother & Daughter card making class that was a real pleasure to facilitate.
I love my job ~ have I said that often enough?!
Seriously, teaching what I love to do ~ awesome!
 
Anyway, one of the cards that we created was this little Easter chicks card using watercolor pencil crayons.

 

I knew that we just had to give it a try.

They are super simple and fun to make!  All you need is some heavy card stock, watercolor pencil crayons {or water color paints, or watered down acrylic paints}, a paint brush {I used my water pen, its the yellow thing} and a fine tip black marker or pen.  Here’s how to make your own Easter chicks…

With the watercolor pencils, make five colorful ovals.  Don’t forget little orange beaks.  Color lightly with the pencils, no need to press down on the paper too hard.

 Using a paintbrush and water {or water pen in my case}. gently paint over the pencil crayon images.  The water will blend the pencil and leave behind a lovely watercolor look.

  Finally add a few chicky details with the black pen.
