🔴 LIVE REPLAY! Easy DIY Watercolor Leaves with Minimal Supplies

Hello, all! I hopped on YouTube for some live watercoloring this afternoon. I created a very simple watercolor card using minimal supplies! Catch the replay!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I didn’t use many supplies for this card. Just basic watercolors, a brush, and watercolor paper. For the greeting, I created a black background using a Sharpie marker and then wrote “Miss You” with a white gel pen.

For more cards like this, check out my online class Simple Watercolor. Thanks for stopping by!

    You are such an awesome teacher!! I really love your videos. Subscribe on YouTube and watch you all the time. I wanted to make sure that you have agreed for to use your videos and projects. It looks like a semi-sketchy website and I just wanted to let you know in case you haven’t approved :) They have a bunch of YouTuber tutorials on there and I got they feeling they stole them. But maybe not.
    Anyway! Thank you for sharing your content with us. I love the projects you make and have lots of time to craft right now – and that makes me feel happy!!!
