{Spellbinders} Thank you...

I love florals.  I am scared of them because usually I see them in watercolors and all the gorgeous Copic coloring and I don't do well with either.  I recently received the new Hero Arts Watercolors and I had to dive in and check them out.  I paired them with this set of dies from Spellbinders and I was pretty happy with the results... (all products linked below)

First, I dove in to the watercolors and just played around on a piece of watercolor paper.  When I had some good swatches of color, I die cut the blooms and leaves.  I was able to go back in with more concentrated color to add in some detail.  The colors are so bright and vivid!

I decided to flick on a little green in the background.  This was so easy to add on for a subtle amount of background color.  I die cut the Thank you from the Spellbinders Celebrate Two die set and added that to the card base in white cardstock.

I decided to leave it alone at that point and let the white background shine.  I do love white space.  But if you follow my blog, you know that about me.  :)

I have some more Spellbinders dies that I am working with now, so I will be back in soon to share!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
