AAA Birthday Card Challenge

I began by stamping the Penny Black image in light ink and did a no-line watercolor.  I left the stamp in my Misti, and when the water coloring was dry, heat embossed with gold.  Then I added some background water color wash, masked the flower area, and splattered with gold and leftover pink and green from my palette.
Then heat embossed the sentiment. The panel was cut down and matted on some Cotton Candy card stock, and popped up with foam tape on a panel of gold linen. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.
