Watercolored Resist Die-cuts

I got to make a little mess with this next layout. The page itself isn't messy, but my kitchen counter sure was after watercoloring the leaf cluster die-cuts and the resist die-cut heart and flower. I dabbed washes of color here and there, sloshed water around, wiped off some color, added more color, etc. Left behind were outlines of every die-cut in technicolor! But check out those flowers:

The soft colors of the papers and watercolored die-cuts are even more beautiful contrasting with the black and gold accents and lettering. Here are a few closeups: 

The papers naturally curled a bit when watercolored, but I really love the look! And no problem about the mess; watercolor washes off easily...with water. ;)

This page was created with Scraptastic's February Counting Stars kit and add-on. So pretty.
