I got to play with the fun and versatile Harlequin Die for the blog hop.


I used the Harlequin Die with watercolor paper and colored the cutouts with watercolor. I used both the positive and negative of the cutouts from the Harlequin Die for the background.


The adorable dinosaur is cut using the Dinosaur Die and colored with watercolor and the sentiment is from the Huge Hugs set.

That's all for now. Don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win! Have fun hopping and good luck! =)
