Day To Celebrate Card

Today is day four of the 30 day color challenge at The Daily Marker 
Here's my card...
 I decided to do some color lifting for today's post.  I used Penny Black stamps, Asters 3368K and a day to celebrate from the gratitude clear stamp set 30-105.

I started by blending distress inks on a watercolor panel.  Colors were candied apple, fired brick, mustard seed, crushed olive, and peeled paint.  I used sponge daubers to blend the ink.  Next, I spritzed the asters stamp with plain water, and 'stamped' it onto the colored panel.  I repeated a time or two.  After a few seconds, I soaked up the excess water with a paper towel, and the ink lifted off the background where the wet flower stamp was!  I love this is so much magic!  I inked the stamp with the distress pads, and stamped it here and there also.  

I created some water drop spots by letting drops of water fall from my fingers onto the card, then lifted those.  I also used the PB script background stamp to intermittently add script.

The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder, and some red/green fibers wrapped around.  A few pearls finished off the panel, then I attached it to a white card, using craft foam for dimension.

I am also adding this card to these challenges:
