Thankful in Watercolor

Hello everyone!  I have a super easy project today.  I am featuring Jamie Cripps' Thankful short envelope bag and watercolor.

Have you tried watercolor with your svg files?  Well, one of my nightly rituals is to watch You Tube videos.  I subscribe to Jennifer McGuire (like many others) and she's always doing something with watercolor and die cuts.  So I wanted to give it a try with an svg cut.  I cut the sentiment and the leaf from Strathmore watercolor paper.  I then watercolored using Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed.

As these dried the color really intensified!  I love these results.  Oh!  Let me also note, when cutting watercolor paper with your Silhouette I used setting for Silhouette Brand chipboard.  The blade depth is supposed to be set on 6 per the settings, I went to 7 and it cut beautifully.

Have a great day!

WOW what a wonderful result and thanks for the information about the paper, I can now use the watercolour paper that I have in the back of my shelves somewhere.
