A Simple & Unique Painting Technique your Teen will Love @Education Possible

A few months ago, we met a woman who was painting beautiful note cards. They were stunning and looked like they took hours to complete.

After talking to her, we discovered that the design on the cards was a rubber stamp and the paint was actually the juice from frozen blueberries. We were shocked!

Our family loves to make handmade cards, so we thought we’d give this technique a try.

DIY Blueberry Painted Note Cards

Supplies:

  • Juice from frozen blueberries (eat the blueberries and use the juice that’s left in the bag)
  • A little bowl of water
  • Rubber stamp & ink
  • Small paintbrushes
  • Cardstock and/or watercolor paper

They’re Easy To Create

Here are a couple of different card styles you can try.

  • Stamp and paint directly onto cardstock. Keep an eye on the back, making sure the wetness doesn’t seep through too much.
  • Stamp and paint on a piece of watercolor paper. Once it’s dry, cut out the picture and use a small foam adhesive to attach to the front of the note card.
  • Instead of attaching the flower onto the cardstock like the previous design, first cut out a piece of colored cardstock and tape it to the note card. Then affix the flower.
