Loose Watercoloring

Good Thursday everyone! I was up rather late last night finishing this card for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme is "A Bit of Sparkle".  I wanted to try some "loose" watercoloring which I always struggle with.  The OCD side of me thinks I need to fill in the coloring space - lol - so it's difficult to leave white space.  My sparkle elements are the gold foil stripes, gold embossing and clear sequins.  I colored using Zig Clean Color brush markers.

STAMPS: Bamboo Rose (Altenew).
PAPER: Blush and Mint (Recollections); Ranger watercolor CS.
INK: Versamark.
DIES: Bamboo Rose (Altenew); Stitched Rectangle (Lil' Inker Designs).
