I couldn't find a tutorial on this technique, unless I wasn't searching correctly. Should I be using watercolor or regular cardstock? Should I not wet the paper first?
I don't think you need the added water...most flowers have plenty of moisture. If you put a paper towel below your paper when you run it through the die-cutting machine, it should absorb a lot of the moisture and give you a better impression. Because of the moisture, it's probably best to use water-color paper.
