Distress Inks and a Watercolor look

For the current Lawnscaping challenge you are supposed to try a new technique. I so love techniques and playing around with them that it was hard for me to think of something I had not tried.  
 I did manage to come up with something a little bit different for my resulting card.  I purchased a set of four mini Distress Stains.  I wanted to see what would happen if I pressed each pad onto a piece of watercolor paper, spritzing it with water.  I ended up creating a colorful border.  I loved the way the colors ran together and ran out on this great paper.  
 I could see it being the perfect piece to stamp an image onto it.  I stamped two leaf sprigs from Lawn Fawn.  I also stamped the little flower and cut that out and added a little sentiment.  I added it to a card base that has some embossing on the top and the bottom edge.  I also added on a few sequins that are the exact same color as the card. 
Here is the Lawnscaping challenge.
