Simple Formula with Intricate Dies (Take 2)

Hello friends! 

I am popping in with a quick post. It is a bonus project from my previous share about using a simple formula with intricate dies. You can see the post HERE.

 I think I found a simple formula with intricate dies. 

Floral Doodles Die Set

The card formula: color contrast, gold outlines, and a strip of Washi Tape.

Here is my 2nd version.

Once again, I used my own watercolor paper and die cut the pieces according to the colors and mix.

There is something special about watercolors....as you can see the yellow/orange merged with purple... it is quite exquisite.

And then you mix in the blue, they make a lovely ensemble.

I highly encourage you to get your watercolors out and just play!
