PTI Watercolor challenge

Hello! I'm super excited to share my card for today's Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge - to use Watercolor technique on a project - I so love how it came out so soft and pretty! 
I used the Mini Mehndi Medallion stamp set, and first stamped the large image in Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, and Harvest Gold on Watercolor Paper. I then used a water brush to smear that around, and gave it plenty of time to dry, before stamping the same thing in the same colors on top of each one.
Next, I grabbed some of the smaller ones and stamped them randomly around on the rest of the area. 
It still felt like it needed a little more watercolor effect, so I smudged my ink pads on my non-stick mat, rubbed my water brush in the ink, then added some bits of smeared ink on the paper. 
Let all that dry one more time, then stamped a sentiment from "Heart Print Sentiments" over the top, added a couple wraps of jute twine, and a wooden button.
Finished off by mounting that on a Lemon Drop Cardstock base using foam adhesive. Yep...I think I'm in love with the watercolor technique!
