Another watercolor card

Today, I made myself make a card - first time in a couple of months.  I tried watercolor again.  I found several bottles of very old Dr. Ph. Martin Hydrous fine art watercolor.  It's a liquid with a dropper.  I dropped a couple of colors onto a plastic lid and added water.  I then brushed some onto damp watercolor paper.  The color was very intense, so I blotted some off with a paper towel.  I also spritzed the background with water with gold Perfect Pearls added.  I selected a portion of this and die cut it with a Spellbinders dies.
I used Versafine ink to stamp the flowers and sentiment, then added white embossing powder.  The butterfly is made with a Martha Stewart punch.
