Aeiheartu and color throwdown.

I have one card for today but am entering for the challenges at Avery Elle and also Color throw down.
I have tried the watercolour technique before but Ive always kept it very light in colour 
Thanks to the color throw down i went a lot brighter and used so saffron and tangerine tango stampin up markers.

I used Two Avery Elle sets the one for the background is called Blooming banner and was stamped in versamark and heat embossed in white onto watercolour paper.
Then heavily spritzed with water and dried with a heat gun.
The sentiment is from framed fonts and was also stamped in versamark and heat embossed in white onto black card.
I finished by adding some machine stitching and some black rhinestones.
Thanks for looking.
