How To: Transfer a printed photograph onto trading card-sized watercolor paper

Transfer a printed photograph onto trading card-sized watercolor paper

Make homemade trading cards of your family! These won't look exactly like baseball cards, or even feel like them, but they're cute and somewhat artsy depictions of your favorite photographs. You only need a few items (listed below), but make sure you have a nice photograph to transfer over. It won't look exactly like the picture, but it will look roughly hand drawn, but not quite. Definitely an interesting paper craft. Try it out. Experiment.

* Watercolor paper cut to trading card size (2.5" x 3.5")
* Printed inkjet photograph
* Bonefolder (or bone folder) for burnishing
* Water bottle
* Water
* Scissors
* Paintbrush
