Using Your Old Stash and New Stuff for a Color Dare 461 Challenge

 I used a lot of discontinued products to make the card. The sunburst die cut has been sitting on my work area waiting for the perfect place. When I went to find my watercolor paper I found a pack of Picture My Life cards cut from watercolor cardstock with resistance patterns on them. Going through them I found hearts to go with the hearts on the sunburst paper. This is too perfect! I picked 4 Distress Oxide colors to go with the Color My Heart Color Dare 461 color wheel challenge. This is #2 of the Double Complementary Rectangle combinations that you can form. You must use the four corner colors of the rectangle. The stamp is from one of the Craft With heart Card Subscriptions. It was also perfect! Sometimes the planets align!!! Hope you enjoy my video. The Oxide goes on watercolor paper like "Butta".

Here is the card:
