HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY

The challenge this month at CAS Mix-Up is to colour your die cuts.  I chose to watercolour mine.

I began by lightly stamping a striped background which was 4x5.25.  Then die cut the lower left area with my new Blossom die.  Here's how I did my watercolouring:

I die cut the flowers using a dryer sheet underneath my cardstock while I was cutting.  Then I used my Zigs for the colouring.  As you can see I have two extra coloured for more cards.  This was really an easy way to do colour as I didn't have fiddly little pieces to manage (and probably lose!).  Mounted the striped piece on a white card base, fitted the pieces in place, added the sentiment and done!!



Also am entering my card in The Paper Players "Celebrate" challenge and LaVon's Love challenge for July.

Thanks for stopping by today and also for your kind comments.

  7. Gorgeous colored die cut flowers, Betty. I do not use dryer sheets, but I have discovered the Press and Seal works great to keep the little die cut pieces from falling out. TFS your beauty and joining us at CAS Mix Up. Hugs...
