Make It Monday #109: Watercolor Stamping Plus Embossing #2

This is officially my favorite technique I've ever tried - I love how the crisp embossing looks over the slightly spread out color. I just need to buy a few more re-inkers as this is the only limiting factor at the moment.
I used PTIs "wreath for all seasons" for the image and the sentiment and Tim Holtz weathered wood and Antique rose for the inks. I initially tried embossing with white powder but decided I wanted the wreath to stand out more. It's still a nice look though.
I couldn't decide if I wanted to stamp the sentiment directly on the card and leave the final card very CAS, but it looked too stark so I then fiddled around with the sentiment banner and I'm not sure that I didn't spoil a lovely, simple card. The dark line separating the 2 elements is a piece of twine dyed with the same antique rose ink.
