MIM #218: Watercolors with die cut stencils

I´m so proud, I´m so proud. ANOTHER post, can you believe it? Lol.
I love love love it when I see so many talented watercolor artists out there, could watch them coloring ALL DAY long. So pretty, yet I was scared to do it myself (with all those perfect Images in your head how can you ever feel you didn`t fail? :-))
But ... this MIM seemed to be managable to me and so I gave it a try
I chose the `text block: baby die´ to cut my stencil and used a very inexpensive set of watercolors I had bought last year in Spain.
Didn`t glue the stencil very well to the card base ... but I guess ... as it`s supposed to have a `not super perfect´ look, it`s fine as it is, huh?
I am okay with the result PLUS - tadaa - could use the stencil for another card.
Thank you for stopping by!!!!

And here`s the second card with the actual die cut.
