  In order to add a pop of color for the focal point, I die cut the frame with Mix and Match Frame Die.

After taking out the outside panel, I applied colors to the main frame and die cut it through the Flower Bed Embossing Folder.

This resulted a colored panel with a white border. I also popped up the main panel with two more pieces of paper to make it more pronounced.

 I added the "XO" with the Mighty Alphabet Die  and that's it!

Do you know...... Embossing Folders are GREAT for water-coloring!

All you need is watercolor paper like this A2 size. The ridges help you decide on the colors and it was super fun and therapeutic to do. You MUST try it if you have not done so!

Magnolia Ballerina Stamp Die Stencil Bundle

You might ask how I came about with this design.... I started out with the beautiful Scalloped Frame 3D Embossing Folder.

I love inking up the surface. Once I finished that part, I found a Magnolia Ballerina flower from my stamp stash.
