Sweet Pea - Blue Rose Tatoo in Earthy Colors

I made this card for the current Sweet Pea Stampers - the theme was to pick one of the elements (Earth, Wind or Fire) and interpret it in a card. As you could probably guess I picked Earth.I used Blue Rose Tatoo stamp, stamped on watercolor paper. It's been colored with water based ink and aquapainter in earthy colors. For the background I used an actual copper plate (no, it's not a cardstock, but a copper plate used for manufacturing PCBs) - It's a really thin one so I was able to emboss it and attach it to the CS with a sticky strip.
I used a sketch from Card Patterns, flipped it and used rhinestones instead of the circles.
and here is a detail:
