W&W WCMD Sketched watercolour

Another entry into Winnie and Walter's WCMD challenges, this one for the Sketched with Gayatri and another entry into the 
Watercolour with Vanessa
I am using the gorgeous hydrangea image from Addie's Garden.  My, this is a pretty set and so very wonderful to work with!  It took me right back to my home up north and the late summer when I would hang my hydrangea heads to dry...
I truly messed up with my attempt at water colouring the background for these.  I first went very pale grey blue, should have stopped, then added more grey, then was horrid!  So, I fussy cut my blooms out and adhered to a pearly cream card stock front, very close to the pearl EP that I used to heat emboss the images, cut more narrow and then layered onto a pale plum card front.  i had a couple of watery blue sequins in my stash and also added some of the sequins that arrived with my W&W goodies.  The sequins are not showing their true colours in this photo.   The Happy die cut is from Technique Tuesday.
Here she is,

A close up of the embossing and colours.
