Aren’t they cute? Let’s get started!

1. Italian Country Side.

I used an adult coloring book page for my ATC, but you could use a real picture of your house/farm or if you are really creative then you could draw your own.

Cut out the picture (an exact-o knife is very helpful)

Trace the bottom of the picture onto your ATC. (see how mine is “built” on a hill, if yours is like this then you will need to paint the grass parts green and the sky parts blue.

Paint the background of your ATC light blue for the sky

And green for the grass! (I used watercolor paints)

Next carefully color the picture (or if you are using a photo then I will most likely already be colored)

Then glue on the picture to the ATC!

2. Green Grass!

First draw grass like lines on a blank ATC card using a pencil.

Outline the lines with a pen.

I added a scripture verse to my ATC, but of course this is optional.

Ugh, my lettering isn’t the best. XD

Add some color, either with watercolors, or like I used colored pencils!

3. Tree Buds.

Begin by drawing some branch like lines on a blank ATC.

Then outline them with a brown pencil.

Add more details and little twigs to those branches. 🙂

Add the red buds to each branch!
