Happy


Hope you're enjoying your Memorial Day.
I had some time to play along with Papertrey's Make It Monday, 
this week featuring Dawn McVey and creating Gradient Watercolor Die Cuts.


Dawn had several tips for creating the gradient color change, and she made 
2 cards, so I did too.


First in blues and then in pinks and reds, and using the Bitty Butterflies
Cover Plate, and One Big Happy.
Dawn used her Zig pens, which I also used. Her tips on blending were perfect!
Play along all week here:



I die cut my happy three times and silver embossed the flower on vellum.
