Recommended Winter Card Supply List
Paper
Paint
Brushes
Other Stuff
If you want to paint individual cards:
  • Watercolor paper (140# CP) cut to fit standard envelopes or
  • packaged watercolor cards with envelopes (make sure they are labeled
    Watercolor Cards or Mixed Media Cards so the will hold up when using
    wet paint.)  

If you plan to scan and duplicate multiple cards:
  • Watercolor paper (140# CP) any size in the correct ratio.
     I recommend and use Arches 140# CP due to it's durable surface that
     allows me to scrub and scratch the surface without damaging the paper.
  • packaged Watercolor Cards or Mixed Media Cards (as listed above)
Winter colors are often thought of as cool and blue and that's a good place to start.
     Cobalt Blue                 Indanthrone Blue                        Quinacridone Violet
     Ultramarine Blue         Quinacridone Burnt Orange          Verditer (Blue)
     Cerulean Blue              Quinacridone Gold                      Quinacridone Scarlet or Coral
These are suggestions, additional colors can be added or mixed in, use what you have.
