Watercolored Swirly Background CAS Card

Hello, I have a simple card for you today.I first heat embossed watercolor paper with sparkly white powder using my Penny Black Dotted Fusion stamp. I then colored it with various Distress markers and wet them to blend the colors.
PB-BG-Watercolor
The sentiment is from Penny Black Amazing! which I stamped on a flag. The only embellishment the card needs is a little flower and some burlap string. Adhesives are by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
