Camp Create 2017 Day 2 - Remarkable Resist

I'm back for day 2 of Camp Create 2017 at My Favorite Things.  The activity for day 2 is to create a card using a watercolor resist technique.
I embossed the Whimsical Waves background stamp on a piece of watercolors with white embossing powder.  Then I added Peerless watercolors in Robin's Egg Blue, Forget-Me-Not Blue and Turquoise.  I'm listing the colors so that I can come back to this post to remind myself what they were.  I'll definitely be recreating that combination for more cards!
 Here is the background piece that I created before I used it on my card.  I have to say that I am so in love with this piece of paper that I didn't want to cut it and put it on the card!  If a certain friend reads this she will laugh out loud.  She makes fun of me because I have a piece of ribbon that I dyed years ago but refuse to cut because it turned out so beautifully!
However, unlike the ribbon I did trim this piece and create the card below.  I added images from the MFT Mermazing stamp set that I colored with copic markers.  The banner is from the Blueprints #28 die-namics set.
I'm really happy with how this card turned out and I've earned my second badge!
