Penny Black, Watercolour technique

Watercoloured diecuts!

Hello dear friends,
I have been playing with Penny Black’s new dies over the weekend. I love them especially the flower dies. They are so versatile. Watercolouring them was so addictive that  I made three cards. Today I am sharing the one of the cards.

For this card I have used Playful Posies die set from Penny Black

Normally, I die cut and then watercolour. Then I can control my watercolouring and also choose what colour goes where. But for this card, I watercoloured the cardstock first with different colours then die cut the die out. I love the colour variation on the die cuts due to this technique. This gives more of an abstract look to the die cuts instead of traditional colouring of green for the leaves and red, blue or pink for the flowers. Hope I make sense 🙂

So I simply adhered the watercoloured die cut on to the black card base toward the bottom. Then stamped the sentiment from You & Me stamp set also from Penny Black on a strip grey cardstock and adhered using foam adhesives. Finally I added some glossy red enamel dots to accent the reds on the die cuts.

I simply love the high contrast on this card and the variation of colours on the die cut.
Thanks for stopping by!
