Easy DIY Galaxy Father’s Day Card Made with Minimal Supplies

Hello all! I’m still on my watercolor galaxy kick, so I thought it would be fun to make a galaxy card for Father’s Day but use less expensive supplies and not that many supplies, either. :)

I created a simple heart shaped galaxy by first sketching a heart lightly with a pencil. Then I painted the galaxy using colors straight from the Crayola watercolor set.

Tip: Be sure to use only a small amount of water when mixing your paint in order to make it more saturated. The main complaint I hear about inexpensive watercolor sets like this is that the colors aren’t very strong. You can get stronger color by using less water.

The stars were created by splattering on a bit of white gouache. You could also use some acrylic paint or any other opaque white medium.

I hope you enjoy today’s card! You can definitely change the handwritten sentiment to whatever you’d like, too. I chose to make mine a Father’s Day card. :)
