Watercolor Layered Design for CAS Mix Up

Hello friends.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I've had such fun with this die cut!
I did the reverse on this post.

This time I die cut from mixed media paper and watercolored
using Distress Markers, a palette and a water brush

Once the coloring was done and dry, it was easy to pop it on
to a dry embossed piece and finish it up.

Using watercolor die cuts, stamping and dry embossing

(I didn't go with the BABY option)

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

This is so sweet Bonnie! Another great way to use this die-cut. Both versions are awesome! xx

Bonnie, such a sweet image with the die cut birds, I love your perfect wood grain background framing them :)

It's a gorgeous die, and I like both versions you've done with it. I must say, I'm a bit prejudiced, as THIS one is my favorite! As always, your w/coloring is awesome, & this little vignette looks lovely against the woodgrain background. TFS & Hugs

Awwwww...sweet, sweet card my friend! You really do make the most wonderful bird cards!! These two little guys are so colorful and pretty and just love how they're sitting among the blossoms! LOVE the woodgrain cardstock behind your die cut too! Really need to get my dies out and find one for this challenge...been in kind of a funk since the shut down of Merry Monday...maybe I need to find a Christmas die cut to color?! But anyway, lovely card my friend. Have a great weekend!! :0)

Your watercoloring is always so beautifully done, Bonnie. Love that die too. This is such a delightful card and it does look like it was fun to make.

What a beautiful card Bonnie! I am loving that die and you have water colored it up so well. Gives it such life. It looks perfect on top of the pretty wood embossed paper. Hugs, Brenda

I'm always impressed you use the negatives/positives of die-cuts so well, Bonnie! They always look like they are die-cut just for that card.
The die-cut design is sweet but your watercoloring makes it look much sweeter! I especially love how you watercolored the intricate branches with all the shades. (I would have to hold my breath while watercoloring these!!) Hideko xx
