AAA Cards #10 - Watercolor

Well, if you ask me what my first love in creating is right now, I would clearly say watercolor techniques so this challenge is everything I love!
At AAA Cards the challenge this week is to create with a watercolor technique!
 The watercolor paper I am using comes in a tablet that you tear the pages out of.  I used that torn, top edge as part of my card.  I first played around with some browns/oranges in Distress Stains with spritzes of water.  When this was dry, I took a dot stencil and some gold embossing paste and added a few dots.  I love the fun accent this adds.
I stamped this really cute coffee cup stamp from Endless Creations.  It is colored with Copic markers and I cut out the band from a piece of watercolor paper that I colored with more Distress Stains and a stencil.  The tag is from Avery Elle, the sentiment from Endless Creations.
Thanks for visiting and be sure to play along at AAA Cards,
