Here's my card:

I started with the beautiful stamp Thee Flowers 14.639.P, and stamped it with Versamark Ink onto watercolor card stock, then embossed with white embossing powder.  I brushed water onto the panel and painted it with colors from Artquest Palette Metallic (using Super Copper, True Blue and Spring Green)  With the panel being wet already, I did not take particular care to stay within the embossed lines, preferring the colors to run and blur just a little.  At the end I flicked some dots of True Blue paint onto the whole panel.  

Taking a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock, I cut out an oval using Sizzix Framelits Ovals.  I took the Magenta stamp Rest & Renewal 07.843.G, and using a stamp positioner, stamped the first line of the sentiment at the top and the second line at the bottom of my card.  A tutorial on this technique can be found on my blog here.  (Scroll down for the bonus tutorial using a stamp positioner).

The oval panel was adhered to the watercolored flowers, and the whole thing was adhered to a base card made from Stardream Fair Blue paper.
