Pattie`s Creations Design Challenge, a Heart Candy Box Card

We meet again at Pattie`s Creations Design Challenge for this month the theme is Lots Of Red:

I took Pattie`s lovely Image named Heart Candy Box and printed it on a watercolor paper, then colored with Peerless Transparent Watercolor. For the background I stamped this old swirl with clear ink and clear embossing powder too. I want my paper a bit have texture but not too much motiv on it.

Here is the closed photo of how I colored my Heart Candy Box. I took also Kuretake Gansai Tambi and took the gold watercolor and colored the space area between the candy. 

This time I gave no sentiment on my card...only a doily that I colored bit Tea Dye Distress Ink. I really love the shiny swirl on the red paper behind the main image.
