Just Us Girls-Technique challenge

Hi!  I'm here with my card for the Just Us Girls challenge #244.  Sue has a technique challenge for us today and you'll love it because it's watercolor!  Watercolor is so in right now.  I see it everywhere even though some techniques with watercolor have been around for a long time.  Like the one I used....

I colored this Penny Black flower garden with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  After that I spritzed the colored stamp with a little water.  If you do this, be sure to use a fine mist sprayer. After spraying it's stamped on watercolor paper for the best results.
I then cut my image with My Favorite Things pierced squares .  The image is left inthe die and I used a stencil brush to add in my sky with Pool Party and Baja Breeze.
The card base is white followed by a green panel in Ripe Avocado from Papertrey Ink. Stampin Up's hard wood is stamped in Ripe Avocado.  The Fishtail Flag (MFT) is cut from PTI designer paper.  Everything was adhered together and ..... done?
I think this card could be used for many occasions and would be fairly easy to 'stamp a stack".  Hope you like it too!  Thanks for visiting!
Please join us at Just Us Girls this week, won't you?  You have until Thursday, June 19 at 9 pm to enter your watercolor card or project.  You know we'd love to see what you create!
Please check out the Just Us Girls Blog for tons of inspiration!
