D2D Artist's Challenge & Pal's Paper Arts Color Combo

Hey there stampers!
I hope you are all having the most wonderful day!
I actually have a card to share today that serves two purposes! First, is the Delightful Inspiration's June Artist's Challenge, and secondly, the Pal's Paper Arts Challenge #46.

The image is called 'Potted Flowers' and is available for sale in the new Designed2Delight Digi Shop!
After printing the image on watercolor paper, I used my heat gun to set the ink, and watercolored the image with dye inks and my aqua brush. I ran the colored image through my Cuttlebug with a Lables 2 Nestie, and aged the edges with Chamomile Tea Dye Ink (as is the whole card).

The patterned papers are a combo of Thoroughly Modern and Razzleberry Lemonade dsp's, stitched to a distressed Very Vanilla, and adhered to the Suede card base. The colors are so warm and uplifting, so I thought 'Get Well' was appropriate.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
