 Hello everyone,

I finally found some more of my favorite water colour paper, ordered some and it was here quick smart, so what could a girl do but water colour..but first had to die cut..

don't they look funny just cut and layng there..

Same with the leaves, they a flat and boring..

But then you add colour and water, lots of water, to get the shades going,
 without adding more paint..I went a green and blue..

Then the flowers had a turn and I was in love at this point, orange and yellow paint..

Just random shots of the colours...

And the thickness of some of the water colour..

A group shot..

And started making some cards...

I made some frames as they look good and only had two sheets of orange card stock,
 so had to play wisely..

Place bits and pieces onto the card for placement..then glued them all down..

This is the biggest flower in the set...and I added a flower center from another set as it looked better..

Last card and any minute I'm going to tell you what set it was..???

Made three all up, Birthday cards...

Cards standing up and I'm still thinking..
" Water Garden Layering Set"

I got off my chair and looked it up and now I have fished it out I really have an urge to water paint this afternoon..
So thank you so much for stopping by, I will see you Wednesday with DT project..\I'm off to die cut and paint..
