Watercolor Wonder"ful" Week

Hello and welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop. For the next several days I'll be sharing some hand-crafted projects featuring the Watercolor Wonder DSP and notecards.
My first card is backed with a multi-colored chevron pattern paper from the Watercolor Wonder pack of DSP.  The focal point is a Calypso Coral card stock bloom made with the Spriral Flower Die run through the Big Shot.

Quick Tip:  Assemble flower and then pound, smash, and flatten the petals open with a small ball peen hammer.

Quick Tip #2:  Curl the bakers twine by pulling the ends between your finger nails.
My second card is made with one of the Watercolor Wonder Designer Notecards.  If you have not picked up a pack of these beauties--it's time.  The weight and feel of the cards is so appealing.  I simply added a greeting from Everyday Occasions which I heat embossed with White Embossing Powder and cropped with one of the Chalk Talk Framelits.

Do come back later tomorrow for another Watercolor Wonder'ful' post.
