Today’s card was so fun to make. However, I am not gonna lie, I was running out of patience.
Tiny images & watercoloring call for lots of patience and talent. I lack both. HAHA!
At any rate, the card turned out adorable.
Wondering how I got the little comic squares so perfect? I didn’t! I used a free template from Sandy Allnock. All the details on how to use the template can be found on my video, or on her blog HERE and video HERE.
It wasn’t enough for me to do a watercolor version. I had to try my hand at a copic version also.
Then my mini me was hanging around and saw what I was up to and she had to get in on the action. I love how she did her card. She mixed Bella the puppy and Fuzzy the kitty (kitty named by Macie).
Alright here we are at the video. It’s long but worth the watch.
I try to give some good beginner tips in the video, because I after all am a beginner which makes me an expert in beginner tips.
The supplies are listed below the video.

I think you did a fantastic job watercoloring this card. You have inspired me! Thank you and don’t stop doing watercoloring. I have been following Sandy as well and just learning. Please tell your daughter she did a wonderful job as well! I love them both!

I LOVE this card! I was really interested in getting this set until I saw this video.
Love this technique. I love to work with the watercolors so will have to give this a try. The copics are really bold and your daughter did a super job! Creative Blessings to you both.
Thanks for inspiration. You’re video and reference to Sandy’s template were very useful. If you want to take a look at my CASE it’s here:
I’m using clean color real brush from ZIG Kuretake. They are great for watercoloring
How did you transfer the image from the tracing paper to the watercolor paper?
Christine, After I traced them with the pencil I just pushed the tracing paper down using a bone folder and it transferred some of the pencil lead to the paper. Hope that makes sense.

I love the card, but have been unable to obtain the comic strip template. Any ideas on where to go for this?
