Die Cut Inspiration

We have more die cut inspiration, along with a little watercolor for today's blog post.  Hopefully you've joined our Creative Community on Facebook and are participating in our Die Cut Creative Challenge this month.

We used the Darla Butterfly die and Contempo Circle Border die, both from Memory Box, to create the card below.

The butterfly was cut from our favorite Mixed Media paper from Strathmore.  It's great for watercolor techniques!  We placed some Tim Holtz Distress Inks onto our non-stick craft mat, misted it with water, and then "smashed" the butterfly into the colors.  Once it dried, we had a beautiful watercolor butterfly.  You could also apply this same technique to a larger sheet, and then cut the butterfly from watercolor paper.

We embellished the card with the die cut border and some colorful enamel dots!
