Step 1: Fold the watercolor paper into half.

Get one colored paper, draw a small heart and cut it out. Place it in front of the card and use pencil to trace around it. Continue tracing more hearts leaving enough space between them.

Step 2: Trace hearts in front of the card.

Get the watercolor ready. Choose the colors you want. To get that perfect design, drop some water into the heart before placing the colors. Before bringing the colors, make sure the entire heart is saturated. If so, add the colors. Red and yellow are highly recommended for this love season. If the colors are set, bring an edge to the design by mixing a really water-down gray and paint it under the hearts creating shadows.
