Watercolor monoprint

Today I am combining watercolor and stencil!  I use the Harlequin layering stencil from Tim Holtz to create this card:

I've mentioned that this layering stencil is one of my faves and I just can't emphasize that enough.  It is great for masculine cards!  After creating the background with three tones of blue - Salty Ocean, Broken China and Faded Jeans, I just need to add a sentiment and a focal image, the card is easily done!  This is my first time using the Ranger Embossing Pearls - Silver.  It is not as shimmery as silver embossing powder and somehow I see the luster of a pearl.  Is that why it is embossing pearl?  LOL. 

I'm entering my card to
