Painterly card

The challenge at A Day for Daisies is to create a card with a "painterly" effect.  I thought I had some paints, but it has been so long since I used them that they are pretty much dried up.  My printer's ink and water colors do not get along - there is much smearing.  But, I did try - just used the aqua brush and stayed well away from the lines - I think I sort of accomplished the effect with very little bleeding.  Maybe some one has some suggestions.... 
This image is from A Day for Daisies.  The strip is a glittery border from a sheet by Hobby Fun.  I used Coordinations white core to emboss with Cuttlebug's dots and spots - though I did enhance the white by lightly sanding.

P.S. I've found the best results come from printing onto good quality water colour paper then heat setting with a heat tool (or even a hair dryer if you don't have one).The trouble with aqua brushes is they tend to flood the area and you have little control.An artist grade paintbrush dipped in water then run across a piece of kitchen towel,so it's just damp,works much better.HTH :)
