Watercoloured Tissue Paper Die-cut

Hi everyone.  A reminder that we are already half way through July.  Still just over a week left to play along with CAS Mix Up July's Challenge - Tissue Paper.


I created this watercoloured, textured, and heat embossed background while filming my latest video (Tissue Paper Watercolouring & Techniques).  I used it to die-cut the flower and frame, placing it over a soft brown script background (second generation stamping).  Both the frame and flowers are popped up for added dimension.  I've had so much fun playing with tissue paper this month!!

Here's a close-up ...
