Simple Kid Made Thank You Card 17



I am old school when it comes to saying that you.  We might not always send Christmas cards, but we do send thank you cards.  This year we have been working on a simple kid made thank you card that is great for kids of all ages and uses a resist technique.

Depending on the age of your child you could do the words for them and even assemble the cards.  Now my boys are older they can do these pretty much all on their own and we decided to try using an art masking liquid in addition to using wax crayons as we have done previously.

Firstly we wrote our message on the watercolour paper with either a white wax crayon or painted it with our art masking liquid.  If you are using the liquid you need to let it dry before moving on to the next step.  I like using watercolour paper as it is more absorbent and works better with the paints, plus it isn’t that expensive.  I believe that if you provide the best quality products for your children and instill in them what to use each for that they get a great experience.

Now you can cover your message with watercolour paint.  We love using water brushes with our watercolour pans as they eliminate the need to have a water container and you can also use them to get different effects.  The boys decided to experiment with the paint colours and we have stips of colours, block colour and simple washes.

You then need to allow your paint to dry completely.  If you are using wax crayon the children will see the words magically appear.

Once the paint has dried you can gently rub the masking liquid and it just comes off.

We then cut out our painted thank yous and layered them on to white cards with a coloured card background using double sided tape.
