The second technique we were shown on day 1 of Online Card Classes Watercolor class was how to use watercolors with your background stamps. I made two attempts at this, exactly the same except I used watercolors to paint one and distress inks to paint the other.
The first one is the distress ink card.
And this is the watercolored one.
Both cards are made with an Impression Obsession Cover a card background, a Simon Says Stamp die and a Martha Stewart balloon punch.
