Watercoloring Fun

Happy Saturday!
I did some simple watercoloring with Daniel Smith Watercolor.

I saw it on Simon Says Stamp

Altenew BUILD A FLOWER GARDENIA Clear Stamp and Die Set ALT5274


At first, I didn't like how my watercoloring turned out....
blessed to have you in my life-001
But after letting it sit for a few day, I guess that it was not as bad as I originally thought.
So, I decided to share after all. LOL

I recently got MFT Stitched Rectangles and have used it here.
I saw it on Simon Says Stamp

I also want to update you that I did get a larger size die cut machine!
I got the Grand Calibur for 50% off ($70) in the last big promotion. Because I signed up for the first time, I got extra 15% off....and it qualifies for free shipping since I had it shipped to Michigan where my son works now. It is a GREAT deal. I got it for just over $60!!
As I was going to link the product, I now found out the sale is over.
I got it just in the nick of time! 


Simon Says Stamp's DieCember is in full swing.

Oh, Virginia, your gardenia is absolutely gorgeous; a work of art in my opinion! This one (as many of your others do) requires a frame; it's 'that' stunning! Way to go with your new die cut machine!

Think you hadn't let the watercoloring sit long enough beacause it definitely looks beautiful. Love the layered stitched rectangles, too, they're perfect with this image.
