My Sunshine

There's a new challenge blog called The Cutting Edge, which will feature die-cutting,  and I made a card today for it.  We're to create a card inspired by this one by Karolyn Loncon:

TCEC_2

I was inspired by the watercoloring and the touches of black, and here's what I did:

The Cutting Edge Ch#2

supplies: Simon Says Stamp Partial Cut Flowers die, Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils, black enamel dots, Hero Arts Heyday Sentiments

I simply scribbled 3 colors across my panel, then wet a paint brush and blended the scribbles.  When it was dry I made my die-cuts, then added the enamel dots and framed it up with black.  

And since the current challenge at Virginia's View is also to use die-cutting, I'm entering this in her challenge also.


Thanks for your visit today!
