Homemade St. Patrick’s Day Card

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Homemade St. Patrick’s Day CardI made this card with just a little watercolor paint and a gold paint marker. The markers are not cheap, but add a special touch if you can afford them.
1. I drew many stems and 3-leaf clovers lightly in pencil, filling up the paper as much as possible.
2. Using a small watercolor brush, I painted the outline of each clovers leaf and filled them in with green watercolor paint.
3. I then added more water to the paint and filled in the background with the lighter green, leaving a halo of white around each clover.
4. When the paint dried, I traced the stems and veins with my gold paint marker.
