Water coloring/ splattering

 
I had so much fun making this card and the watercolor splotches that you can see above but even more so in the close-up below.  I recently took a Craftsy class by Catherine Pooler: Wild Cards, 21 Techniques with Favorite Supplies and it was a great refresher and had some new twists.  I had not die cut from a watercolor and embossed the die cut as I did here, and had not tried water splattering before, so thanks Catherine for the motivation!
