I recently bought a set of watercolour paints, so yesterday I pulled them out and had a play. I went through my stash and dug out some paintbrushes (those things have been breeding, I had no idea how many I had!) and a mug of water and a pad of Canson watercolour paper I bought a few weeks ago and just did some experimenting. I cut out a panel of watercolour paper using a "stitched mat" die from Lil' Inkers - (For the second card, I had to extend the die by cutting half, repositioning carefully and cutting the other edge to make a panel the right size.)
And then I did version 2. More intense colour (especially the blue background) and a different layout. Which do you prefer?
