CardMaker Blog Hop



Welcome to the  


 The card above is  made with the leftover watercolored die cut piece 

I am adding this to The Cutting Edge Challenge #10
I went with the beautiful fall colors.


I watercolored my paper, ( I made a stencil from the negative piece so I had an idea when to change colors) die cut with the leaf die.  Recut using green card stock, adhered it to my brown card stock  then added the watercolor pieces to the green outline like a puzzle. Very easy and so much fun! 

Poppy Stamps will be giving away this set of dies to one lucky winner. You have one week to leave a comment, the winner will be announced on the blog September 29, the more you comment the better your chance to win. Good Luck!
