I made these cactus printables even better by using some Derwent Academy products and my Xyron Sticker Maker. Create your own 3D cactus art by following the easy steps below . When I began experimenting with different art mediums, watercolors were always a favorite of mine. I learned that you have to start with the lightest colour and then moving into dark colors when with oil paint, you have to do the opposite. Watercolor dries fast and using Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencil Tins and Derwent Academt assorted brushes are a great alternative to panned watercolors.

Begin by printing out the cactus printables just on standard copy paper. You will then trace the cactus images onto your Derwent Academy Watercolour Pad paper using a waterproof pen. Use your Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencils and use whichever color palette you want. I used 4 shades of green and then I took the assorted brushes and hastily applied water over my pencil shades.
I wanted an imperfect look so I didn’t follow any outer lines and even got some splashes on the paper. To do that, blend your colors and before washing out your brush, just flick it over the paper. Allow it to dry and then cut some free formed floral shapes out of your felt. I used a coral color but, again, use whatever fits into your color scheme. Run the felt through your Xyron Sticker Maker and then apply it directly to the paper. For a more dimensional look, I layered them and scrunched some areas together for bulk. Frame these perfect watercolor cactus printables for your home or as an easy gift for a home warming present. I love these and I’m saving these for when we move and I can get some artwork up on more walls!
