Mind you, you can still watercolor the petal and create your very own watercolor masterpiece. BUT, it is sooooo satisfying that you are guaranteed to get a very artsy and beautiful piece with this die's help!

For the background, I used the NEGATIVE side of the die and created a backdrop for the gorgeous watercolor flowers. If you love playing with colors, this set will not disappoint!

My 2nd card showcased the Lacey Panel Die along with all of the products from 1st card. This Lacey Panel is absolutely intricate and beautiful.

I used the panel as a flower box and arranged some watercolor flowers on top. The Linear Pathway Alpha - Solid and Outline Bundle Die are stunning. Yes, they are quite a duo.
