Embrace Pomegranate

I love to eat pomegranates! That is just a side note. Here is another submission to a great Challenge by Kristina, color inspiration challenge #13! The colors she chose were purely pomegranate, regal rose, river rock, wild wasabi, and whisper white.



This is what I came up with for the challenge. I had a little fun with some acetate. I water colored the image on water color paper and then on the acetate I stamped the littler flowers in white stazon to make a subtle overlay. You can see the a better picture of this in the photo below.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets: Embrace Life, Holiday Blitz
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, River Rock, water color paper, acetate sheet
Ink: Regal Rose Stampin' Write Marker, Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, River Rock, Stazon White, Versa Mark, White Signo Gel Pen
Accessories: Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware, White Half round pearls from the Pretties Kit, River Rock Double Stitched Grosgrain, Wild Wasabi Double Stitched Grosgrain, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer,

I also like the white flowers on top of the rest. And the hodge podge. Great card.

How did you get the "weathered" look on the watercolor paper (making it tan instead of white)? Did you use a sponge and ink pad?
