Watercoloring with dies

Just made a Thank You card for my mom as she needs some.  This one is super clean and simple:

This is actually my second attempt with this technique.  The first one, oh well, was an epic failure and let me just say I was too ambitious to try it with an intricate die.  It is much more manageable with this simple flower die and the results are a lot better. 

What I did was to use the negative space as a guide to watercolor the shape of the flowers.  I used distress inks again, as they blend really well with water and they give me quite a bit of open time to work with.  When I become more advanced, I may try other inks.

I'm linking my card to the following:
