This is a beginner friendly project that would also be nice for seasoned painters as a warm up and since I painted on watercolor greeting cards it’s perfect to mail off to a friend in need of some springtime cheer, wouldn’t you say? Watch the video and see how it’s done!

  • Watercolors: Lemon yellow, Gamboge, Sap Green, Phthalo Blue, Rose  *I used this Holbien set but it has nearly tripled in price since I bought it. This Shinhan set is very similar and affordable at $26 for 30 colors.
  • Watercolor Greeting Cards: I get these in bulk because they are so handy for quick sketches and the come with envelopes for 31 cents a piece!
  • Brushes: I used this set by Zen *Be sure to click the $5 off coupon to get the set of 6 for $20
  • Reference book: *I love all of the books in this series, keep your eyes open on amazon for when these used books show up, I waited and paid between $5-$25 for each book in this series. Worth every penny!

I had such a fun and relaxing time painting with you today, There is something so graceful and beautiful about daffodils, not to mention cheerful. I hope you paint them too! Happy crafting!
