The Challenge: A Day Touched by Kindness

So glad I took the color challenge at Always Playing with Paper.  I wouldn't have combined those colors on my own, but I am happy with how the card turned out.  The background was created by swirling Prima Pastel Dreams Watercolors on a sheet of watercolor paper.  While that dried, I mixed orange and pink watercolors, stamped two flowers from Kindness Matters, and then, made a big mistake!  When die cutting the first flower, I used washi tape to hold the die in place.  I didn't expect it to pull a layer off the watercolor paper, but it did.  Two flowers may have been too much anyway.

That's a great colour combo !! I love the wreath and that you kept it plain compared to the background, it really makes it pop. I agreee I think one flower works really well. Thank you for sharing with us at HLS! Jenny x
