H2H Color Challenge

My goal for this month was to complete a card for all of the challenges at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  This is my final project, mission completed!  This one was certainly a challenge for me!  The last challenge I  needed to complete was the color challenge. I searched through papers, thought of making my own….then I came across the Feels Like Home Watercolor Die Cuts!  It was a lightbulb moment…..I gathered my inks and proceeded to color in the die cut with  my ink pads and a waterbrush.  Here are the colors that are included-

After coloring my flowers, they seemed a little lonely on my card front.  I added some ink splatters in Smoothie ink by adding more water to my ink. I then added some thicker splotches with a stamp from the Birthday in Watercolor Stamp set. I finished the card off with some Canary twine and a few bits of bling.  I am about to start a marathon stamping session of Mother’s Day cards, so this is the first of many…
