Hello, all! What do you say we do some very easy water-coloring and some fun die cutting? I have a few projects I’d like to share in this blog post that I created using watercolor die cuts.

Creating simple and colorful watercolor backgrounds is something I LOVE to do! I am always fascinated by the ways different colors interact together and move on my paper creating beautiful effects. Had I had time – I would be making watercolor backgrounds every day, all day.

For this project I used my current favorite Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper and Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I wet my paper using clear water and a large flat paint brush and added a first layer of colors (yellows, orange, red, green and blue). I let the colors mix and flow on the paper and create beautiful transitions (aside from the red + green which, as expected, resulted in mud). Used my heat tool and dried the paper completely and added more pigment to some areas – more green, more yellow and some pink. I can’t say I was 100% happy with the watercolor background I created, but I knew it would look quite different after it was die cut.

I used Simon’s Single Roses dies and die cut several large and small flowers and leaves out of my watercolor background. I kept the negatives in a few of them just to make them look a bit different. I also die cut flowers out of white cardstock to layer on top of the “solid” roses.

For the sentiments I went with a group of beautiful “painted” dies and die cut them out of gold mirror cardstock. I also added a few pink and yellow enamel dots from my stash and that finished my cards.
