Simon Says Stamp Challenge - "Use Dawny's Sketch"

I made this card for a Simon Says Stamp challenge. We were given a sketch that we had to follow and this was what I came up with. The stamps for the background and flower were inked with distress inks, then spritzed with "pearlized" water before stamping. Unfortunately, the sheen doesn't show up in the picture, but it looks beautiful in real life. I'm really becoming drawn to the "watercolor" look of distress inks when they are misted with water.  Even when misted, the colors still remain vibrant.  

All stamps used were Hero ArtsS5458, K5376CL497
