These word dies cut so beautifully and you can put them on a huge variety of backgrounds to get all sorts of different looking cards. For this one, I used a rectangle of watercolour paper from Elizabeth Crafts designs, moistened it with a bit of water and then brushed it with watercolours.
Just make sure your paper is a little wet so the colour can spread. You can either just brush it with water with a paint brush or use a little spritzer to mist water on the paper. After the paper dried, I added a few stars punched from a Shimmer Sheet and a handful of glitter dot stickers. Simple, but pretty and artistic looking without taking a lot of time or artistic skill. Try different colours for a different look.
