Ellen Hutson Pin Sights Challenge , January mood board

Hello, crafty friends!
I enjoyed Sunday afternoon doodling with watercolor.
Being inspired by the beautiful mood board from the current Pin Sights challenge at Ellen Hutson blog , I made this card.

This is the inspiration mood board.
(Click the image to link to the blog)

To begin, I stamped Mondo Hydrangea on a watercolor paper using Versafine onyx black ink, then watercolored it using Daniel Smith watercolor paints.

Then I splattered some black and gold inks, wrapped the panel with pink ribbon, and then foam mounted it onto a cardbase.
As a final touch, I put some Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix by Pretty Pink Posh. 
Frankly speaking, I just forgot to stamp sentiment. Hope this card would be for any kinds of greetings!

Daniel Smith paints I used are :
Rose of Ultramarine, Ultramarine Turquoise, Prussian Blue, Quinacridone rose, Blue Apatite Gen, New Gamboge, Sap Green, Undersea Green, Prussian Green 

To color hydrangeas, I mixed three different colors of purple/blue/turquoise, added layers of colors until I'm satisfied.
For the splatters, I used some gold and black ink from prima marketing watercolors.

Thanks for reading this post.
Have a good day!

Your watercoloring is perfection ... it really brings that Mondo Bloom to life ... and the splatters are an awesome finishing touch.
