1. Supplies

    1. watercolor paints
    2. watercolor brush
    3. heavy professional grade paper, BFK Reeves or Stonhenge is recommended, make sure that the paper texture is not too rough, this would inhibit the calligrapher from writing on the paper (purchased at an art supply store)
    4. metal ruler
    5. glass of water
    6. cutting mat

    Directions

    1. Tear paper into 3 inch strips

    2. Using the strips of paper, tear them into 3.5 inch pieces

    3. Mix a palette of colors (for example, yellow, orange, pink)

    4. Create washes on the pieces of torn paper using the range of colors from the palette

    5. Let Cards dry for 24 hours before writing on them, this ensures that they are completely dry so the ink will not bleed. Send to the calligrapher or try doing your own calligraphy with a diy calligraphy kit.
