MIM # 251 Gradient Watercolor Die Cuts

Dawn has a video over at Capture the Moment showing how she used watercolors to make a gradient look on die cuts.
I added a few flower sequins from one of Betsy's Kits and called it good.  I used the Zig water color pens.
This die is from PTI: Paper Clippings:  Thank You.
These are a couple of Dawn's cards:
