INK #263 - Watercolour

For our new challenge at Inkspirational we have a technique challenge: Watercolour.
I used a Penny Black image and my metallic watercolor paints on a black background and gold embossing, I really like how the colors turned out. Added a bit of splatter too. And after finishing the card I actually realized I had made a one layer card- it's so much easier when it's unintentional, lol.

Please head over to the challenge blog to see the my INK-teamies have made. 

This card is also for:
Happy Little Stampers
- Watercolour April Anything Goes
Challenge Up Your Life - #146 Splatters

Magnificently pretty design, dear Pia. Gold on black (or vice versa, as the case may be) must surely be one of the most elegant and timelessly attractive colour pairings the world has ever devised.
