Make This: DIY Watercolor Postcard Messages

DIY // watercolor + resist postcards

I recently found blank watercolor postcards at a local art supply shop. I bought a few packs immediately, because I knew they would be fun to play around with, and have come up with a couple of ways to use them for notes to friends and family. I shared one of these ideas on Project Wedding recently: watercolor DIY save the dates.

But if you’re not getting married anytime soon, you can still use this exact same technique to create cool personalized postcards to send to blog buddies, etc. I’ve been using them a lot lately!

The full tutorial can be found right here on Project Wedding. But before you head over there, I’m curious to know…

What color combo would you use if you were making your own set of postcards like this? I’m making a batch of ‘hello’ and ‘thank you’ postcards soon and could use some color inspiration.

This is so cool! I’m a little bit obsessed with making my own stationery, so this might need to be my next project. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for the sweet compliments everyone (and the color combo suggestions).

This is such a fun idea, and so simple! Lately, I’ve been loving red and turquoise together.

This looks like so much fun!! They’re amazing as post cards, but it’s actually inspiring me to make one just to hang in my kitchen or living room!

These are lovely! What a cool technique! I’ve been really into aqua and golden yellows lately, so I’d probably try that combo! Hope you find some good color inspiration!
