Make It Monday #111: Watercoloring Embossed Images

Is it just me or has there been a lot of watercolor/embossing in the last few challenges? Not that I mind as I do like the results but my re-inkers have never seen so much use.
As I discovered with the watercolor splodges 2 weeks ago, I don't have many "detail" stamps (at least not PTI ones) so I decided to use the background basics - tin types (again) and clear emboss over white card stock. I then used Tim Holtz distress inks in Spun sugar and scattered straw to create the watercoloring on the background and the butterfly.
I used the border and image from tag-its #3, and the sentiment from tag-its #2, along with the tiny butterfly from Postmarks. Sadly I was moving without thinking and stamped the little butterfly in the wrong ink so he's standing out a bit too much for my liking but what are you going to do when this is the last element you add?
