Just Us Girls #236 - Technique Challenge

Hello friends!  I'm hostess this week over at Just Us Girls and it's technique week.  I chose this water colored background challenge weeks ago, and it seems that I chose a popular technique!   It's all the rage in blogland recently!   
I chose to do something very simple with my card.  I just took a piece of Tim Holtz water color paper and embossed the sentiment with Versamark ink and white powder.  Then I wet the paper with a paint brush where I wanted the ink to be, and started coloring.  I used reinkers here because they seemed to give me more vibrant colors.  To finish it off I added a gingham ribbon and some sequins. 
You can see more water colored inspiration from the JUGs DT and our guest at these blogs.
