How to Make Splattered Paint Flower Cards

You can make beautiful splattered paint cards and gift tags on blank cards or watercolor paper.  Cards are easier to make than paintings because you don’t need a painted sky or background.  I also love the look of the spattered paint flowers on a white background in a frame.

A video showing how I splatter my paint and some FAQ can be found here.

After trying a lot of brushes I found this one works the best.

The fluid acrylic paint colors I use are here.

I used Strathmore Watercolor Postcards and Strathmore Deckle Cards. You could even make your own cards out of card stock or 140 pound watercolor paper. Working on the watercolor paper if you get a blob or splatter of paint you don’t like. Let it dry completely then use an exacto knife or something with a sharp point to scratch it off.

It’s important to keep the back of the cards clean during the splattering paint process. I placed each on a paper towel and and held the edge of the paper towel to move the card from the painting area to a safe place to dry.

 I used scraps (2″ strips) of watercolor paper for the gift tags. I painted them first, then scored them and tore them so they would have a torn edge look. The strip with the purple flowers I sprinkled clear glitter on the paint while it was still wet. It gives it a fun sparkle without detracting from the flower colors.

Take a look at my new website!

In August 2020 I started reading online to my grandchildren, who live hundreds of miles away. A few years and over a thousand books later we are still reading together on FaceTime. I created to help other grandparents that want to have a rewarding experience reading aloud to children they love!
