PTI Make-It Monday ~ Gradient Watercolor Die Cuts

Hello PTI friends~  This week, the talented Dawn McVey was up with a video for Make-It Monday where she showed us about doing gradient watercolor die cuts.  

I used these three Zigs to watercolor the Pretty Frame Die.  I really love the soft water colored look of the frame once it was dry.  At first, I didn't think it was blending that well but once it dried I found I liked it better.  I guess I need to practice patience.  

I then used Brushed Blooms for the focal point by inking up the stamp and spritzing it with water before stamping it onto the die cut water color card stock.  The sentiment is from Bold & Beautiful Sentiments


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
