Watercolour Stamping on Patterned Paper

Today I've combined two challenges to make my card.  The first one is from the Mod Squad Challenge Blog - watercolour stamping and the second is the StampTV challenge - stamp on patterned paper. I am also entering the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - use a sentiment. Here is what I came up with.

I coloured the image with markers and stamped on the patterned paper. I went over the stamped image with a water brush to give the watercolour effect. I stamped the sentiment, cut the tag shape and framed it with a piece of cardstock. I layered these onto a card base and added the bow.

Here are the products I used:

Gina K Designs: Cardstock-Green Grass and White; Patterned Paper-Delicate Essentials; Stamps-                                   Happy Birthday to You set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Water Brush: Tim Holtz
Ribbon and markers from my stash
