Tree Of Hearts Watercolor Card
Simple, Elegant and Fun—Create your special heart tree today!
Sometimes, simple is best! I simply adore these heart trees. Adding a few special touches of gold for sparkle along with some stripes and polka dots, and they launch into the fabulous category. The best thing about them though, is that they are simple to create and make a wonderful card to send to someone during the holidays!
To add a little more panache to the card, the star and heart are hand-embossed to give it a little more dimension! This is strictly optional, but lots and lots of fun!
Both trees were painted with the same base colors...but look how the gold brings out the yellows and the tree with green stripes and dots brings is much more blue.
This class focuses on adding texture through lines and dots, changing values through texture and using touches of gold to add elegance and fun!
It's your choice of creating a tree with a heart topper or the one with a star (you will receive both patterns)...or mix it up and create your own!

Laure Ferlita is an accomplished watercolorist residing in sunny Florida. Watercolors, nature, travel, painting on location, sketching for the joy of it, and most especially, color, are her passions!
Vibrant color can be found in almost any subject and its shadows. It is her joy to bring those colors to life on paper with some paint and a little water. For many years, Laure worked as a graphic designer, so you will most likely see a strong graphic element in her work.
She started sharing her joy and love of sketching on location over at ImaginaryTrips.com in 2009 and has helped many "travelers" to find their artistic voice since then.
“Watercolor, for me, is the perfect sketching medium." Laure says. “It provides ease of use, quick color saturation, and clean up is a snap and really, you don't need much equipment. After you move past the hype of how difficult watercolor can be, you find out how much fun it is to get out there and actually create on location. It's way too much fun!"
