Orchids - water colored

I made this card for the new challenge on Power Poppy - the challenge was to use a coloring medium that you don't usually use. I don't have any Power Poppy stamps, but I do have a bunch of Flourishes, designed by Marcella Hawley. This one is from Orchids stamp set.
Since I usually reach for markers I decided to water color + use no line coloring. I stamped the image in medium green and started experimenting. It's not perfect, but rather interesting so I used it.
I used a sketch from Papercards.cz
Embossing folder is from Spellbinders, cardstock from Stampin Up, leaf die probably from Joy craft and the rest is from my general stash :)
I'm also entering it into these challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - Y is for You Choose
Morgan's Art World - Add Flowers
