Subtle watercolors

I love playing with watercolor looks. 
 For this card, I started out with a very subtle color combination with some blues and silvers in Distress Stains.  It was then fun to build on that. 
 To give accent to the silver ink, I also used a strip of silver glitter paper to help fit the sketch.  That sentiment is from Reverse Confetti. 
 Here is the retro sketch I used.
I love the subtle colors in this Sunday Stamps challenge so I tried to have my colors match. Not sure I got it exactly but this was my inspiration.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
