To-and-from card with drawing gum and watercolour1
How to do it
Cut a sheet of A5 paper in half and then fold the two pieces down the middle to make small cards.
Print out the PDF that goes with the idea and then cut out the circle and draw around it on a card.
Draw a design with drawing gum and let it dry.
Draw with a red colour along the edge, stopping just before you've got all the way around. The white bit where you haven't drawn gives the effect of light. Draw a little black opposite the white bit to create a shadow effect.
Blend with a water brush and allow to dry.
Gently rub away the drawing gum.
Draw the outline and some details (e.g. a hanger and bow) with the thin end of the black marker.
