Inspired by Nature and watercoloring

Here are 2 cards made with the same technique just different colors
First I created the softly colored backgrounds behind the flowers. I stamped the script stamp several times on a piece of watercolor paper with Versamark and embossed it with clear EP. Then I applied distress inks on a large acrylic block, sprayed them with water and the pressed the watercolor paper panel into the watery ink..dry and reapply as needed.
Then I inked the large flower stamp with SU markers, misted it with water and stamped. The clear embossed script I did at the beginning now creates an interesting pattern on the flowers. Then I just added a couple more splatters and script with distress inks slightly darker than the background.
Background is an embossed piece of Very Vanilla CS, card bases are Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow CS

Challenges:

As You Like It - favorite embossing technique (emboss resist - love the white peeking through darker colors on the top)
