This was such a fun little project that I just had to share it with you! It was also extremely easy to accomplish, which is an added bonus. I started off with heavy-weight plain white business cards. I then made a dyeing solution by mixing water & watercolor paint in a wide, deep bowl, so there would be plenty of room to submerged the card on each side. The depth of the color will depend on how much watercolor paint you use in ratio to the water. A small amount of watercolor paint will result in a lighter hue, while a lot of paint will give a darker color.
We decided on purple and after my color was mixed with my water, I simply dipped the cards a few times until I achieved the look I was going for. I then let them dry about an hour, but you could also speed up the drying process with a hair dryer if you're on a tight timeline! I simply printed off the names on my computer, trimmed with textured scissors and glued the names onto my cards. You could also use a calligraphy technique or your own handwriting, but mine is awful - so there's that. This project was so easy and fun that my middle child helped me with it. There are so many possibilities! What could you create using this watercolor dip method; gift tags, stationary, wrapping paper, business cards? I now want to dip dye everything!!! Have a great week and as always - Happy Designing!
