Watercolor Tea Rose

A card inspired by this color palette at Design Seeds for the
 colors paired with such a dark contrast in this palette.

The background is a watercolor wash using Ranger Distress
Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold.  I then lightly
stenciled with the same colors.
The image is Flourishes Old Tea Rose and it's 
been watercolored "loosely" with added 
spritzing, sponging and a few stamped splats using 
Visible Image Ink Splats.I find stamping the splats in areas where I've 
already laid down color adds just a bit  more depth.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, 
hope you're having a good week so far!
