Watercoloring On Die Cut Pieces

Hello my crafty and artsy friends.  Today I am sharing another card for The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.  I made this card using just watercoloring on die cut pieces on layered backgrounds.

The birds and the houses on the card were coloured using Daniel Smith watercolour.   The orange background were done using Distress inks.  I die cut the birds and the bird houses on Arches watercolour paper first.  After running the sandwich through the die cutting machine, I taped the negative on a wooden board and put back all the die cut pieces to the negative for watercoloring.   I am sure someone probably has done this already but this was my first time and it was actually very fun and easy to do.  At least I  don't have to worry about colouring outside the line ;p

That is it, very simple.  To achieve the deep and bold colours, just keep layering!
