Watercolor card class

I love this new Etched Flower background from My Favorite Things.  When I first saw it I thought it would be beautiful embossed and watercolored to create a background. First I embossed the background with Gold (I also LOVE gold- but what girl doesn't ;) and then I took 2 blue and 2 green Zig Clean Brush pens and scribbled over the top, I then sprayed the entire piece down with water to blend the colors, and let it dry. I just loved the outcome so I tried to not to cover it up too much with a sentiment.  I used the Blueprints 13 die to cut the background, Fishtail Flag Stax to cut the vellum, and Blueprints 24 to cut the circle for the sentiment. I know the photo doesn't look like it but I used a strip of gold CS down the side of the Flag. Finally, the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp is embossed in gold.
