Hello my dear crafty friends! How are you all? Today I have a very beautiful water color Tropical Card and this card features Sizzix Tropical Bird and Sizzix Dainty Upper Case Thinlit Dies by Sizzix Lifestyle. I did a little experiment with colors by adding various water colors to the die-cuts. And I achieved what I desired for! Also I love that pun sentiment. Yes! Toucan do it!! LOL.

Products from Sizzix Lifestyle

I started by die-cutting the Sizzix Tropical Bird Thinlit Die from Canson Water Color Paper several times. I applied a little water to the die-cut and added different shades of green, blue and yellow to the leaves.

I applied the same technique to the flowers (shades of pink and yellow) and the bird (shades of black and purple). I fussy cut the bird, the flower and the beak, layered over the previously water colored die-cut. This created a raised up look and added a little dimension.

Over the main card base, I water colored stripes and added splatters of black pigment.

I die-cut the sentiment out of black card stock from Sizzix Dainty Upper Case Thinlit Dies and adhered it.

And that's all for today. I hope you like it. Don't be afraid to try something new! Just give it a try. TOUCAN (You Can)!! Thanks for visiting. Take care and I'll see you next time! :)
