Watercolor Quilt


Here's another quilt card making use of some summery colors. I began with a piece of watercolor paper, adding some orange inks and spreading them with some spritzes of water and a brush. I die cut the frame using a MFT stitched quilt die, and then cut 3 more times using black, orange, and yellow cardstock. I put the cut pieces back into the quilt frame and added some SU! boho punched flowers with an orange mini brad to the center. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I'm sharing this over at the Little Red Wagon Challenge #344 which is "Fit it in - use an inlaid die cut on your project."

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by today!

I am loving the hot, summery colors on this one Carol! Love how you water colored the farm and then added your beautiful colors in. The flower is perfect for the center of the quilt design! Hugs, Brenda
