Peerless Watercolors

Paint a watercolored background and diecut it with a Stitched Rectangle Layer.  Diecut Stitched Star Layers and Splashing Puddles.  

I love using our dies with felt - here's a tip for you.  It's great fpr diecutting - make it even better by stabilizing it with adhesive label paper or sticker sheets to control the fuzzies and keep liquid adhesives from soaking through.  

Please visit our Ideas Gallery for detailed directions and supply lists for totay's card.
