Negative die cut - Hello Sunshine

Hello everyone,

today I have a day off, and I mean to enjoy it.

So I started off with a watercolor card and some die cutting:

I created the watercolor effect with distress inks on watercolor paper. For the envelop (in the back) I had to cheat a bit, the envelops don't take water very well... So I sponged the positive die cit with the same distress inks and dropped on only a few little drops of water to create some splotchyness.

Originally I intended to cut the top piece a little smaller and leave a small border of the card base looking out, but I used a different paper for the card base (I wanted the base a bit sturdier), and the difference would have shown. So I went for faux stiching instead.

Enjoy the day
