Paper Smooches-Anything Goes Challenge

There is something about the uncomplicated light hearted designs of Paper Smooches that gets my creativity flowing.  Often, I start out thinking that I will do one thing or use a certain stamp and suddenly an idea occurs to me (wish this would happen to me occasionally in the non-crafting part of my life) and I am off in another direction.  Today was just such a day.  I started out wanting to use The Wise Dies Easel Die to make a simple card for the challenge.  When I went to reach for the die, I grabbed the Great Chemistry stamp set instead.  That got me to thinking that I could use the easel as a blackboard and write formulas on it.  Then I started thinking about what to do for the background and that brought me to think about watercolouring a background since I am taking the Watercolour 2 Online Card Class on Monday.  This card would then suit two purposes.  Now of course, it is no longer a simple card with an “explosion” watercolour background, layering, copic colouring and dimensional embellishing, but it was so much fun to make!
