Not an artist? Not a problem! In today’s blog and video, I will show you an easy way to create cute watercolor cards with Q-Tip cotton swabs! I have all of the supplies I used linked below – but as long as you have a few basics, that’s really all you will need!
Watercolor Paper Watercolors Distress Inks Blending Tool Glue Runner
American Crafts Pens Glue Dots Foam Squares Acrylic Block Jewels Q-Tips
Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Nested Dies Ribbon Baker’s Twine
Double-Sided Tape Cutter Bee Scissors QuikStik Tool Stamp Set
The two cards (pictured above) were made specifically for Mother’s Day (for my Mom and Mother-in-Law) but I think they could work for other occasions. Also, this watercolor Q-Tip technique can be used in art journals, Bible journaling, on canvas – you name it!
To see the full video on how I made these cards, start-to-finish, please check out the video posted below. I hope you enjoy this technique. Have a craft-tastic day!! 🙂

When I was younger, I absolutely loved the artwork by artist, Lisa Frank. My school pencils and folders were all covered with her art. She also has a few art pieces with animal print, which I love! So, the colors and print of today’s card are inspired by the artwork of Lisa Frank.
