TLC554 Watercolor those Dies


Hello everyone!! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend...it was a lot cooler here and I think we are all in a better mood...LOL!!! The second day of the church garage sale is over and the grand total is over #3000.00!!! We are sooo pleased and proud of everyone who helped...I go to church with some pretty awesome people!!! Anyway....

It's my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast and I have a fun and messy one for you...we are going to watercolor those diecuts. 

Here are the deets:

1. Watercolor a large piece of watercolor paper with colors that will fit your design using reinkers, ink pads, watercolors, watercolor crayons, or any other medium you like.
2. When your watercolored paper is dry, cut some of your diecuts using any dies you choose. 
3. If you don't have diecuts, you can use punches. 
4. Please use the watercolored paper for a part of your design, not just for a background. 


My card features several Taylored Expressions dies...the ones I used with the watercolored paper are the Build a Scene-Winter Trees, the tree from the  Little Bits-Central Park, and the tiny tree from the Little Bits-"Tis the Season set
They were all cut from a piece of watercolored paper that was colored with several Ranger Distress Inks. The trees were adhered the the background *snow* which was cut with the TE Build a Scene-Rolling Hills dies. The snowflakes cut with the TE Little Bits-Snowflake Confetti and adhered to the Salt Water Taffy sky. The penguins were cut with the TE Little Bits-Penguin dies and the scarf's were cut out of the waterecolored paper. The frame was cut with the TE Picture Perfect-Horizontal die and the Santa hats were cut with the TE Christmas Confetti dies. To finish it off, the *ice rink* was cut with the Little Bits-Central Park die and glittered up for a little glam.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can join us for this weeks challenge!!!
