3 DIY Valentine’s Day Watercolour Cards

3 Valentine's Day Watercolour Tutorials

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you might be looking to give something with a personal touch. I’ve always been more excited to receive something that was made with love than something that was simply grabbed at the local drugstore in a pinch. Can you relate?

That’s why I’ve put together three totally unique DIY watercolour card ideas that are easy enough for beginners and will make for a heartfelt keepsake. They are also quick to create if you’re in a rush!

Heart Cupcake Watercolour Tutorial

The first one is this adorably delicious illustrated cupcake!  Topped with a candy heart of course to keep with the Valentine theme.  Using a few different shapes and some easy shading techniques, you can craft your own yummy baked concoction. You can use this on the face of a card or as a print to frame and hang!
