Stenciled Background and Watercoloring with Zig Clean Clear Brushes

Hello! I went out of my comfort zone and created a video to go along with this card. I used Bristol white cardstock to watercolor with the Zig Clean Clear Brush markers. I embossed the cabbage rose using white embossing powder.

I then created the background using Sweet Stamps' Tangram art stencil in shades of Dandelion and Montego Bay. I created a mask for the cabbage rose using a piece of post it note. I colored in the image using a shade of yellow, green and red. I used a water brush to distribute the colors. The sentiment is from the Keep Calm set. I freehand the banner and adhered it onto the card using 3d tape. I felt it needed something so I randomly added some rhinestones.
For more details on how I created this card, please check out my YouTube video below or click the link to go directly to YouTube. Please be gentle. This is my first video :)
I made a mistake of swiping the red ink with the first card below and it smeared a bit onto the stenciled background so I ended up with two cards :) The top one I placed the stencil in a different direction.

Stamps: Sweet Stamps (Keep Calm, Cabbage Rose)
Papers: Bristol white
Inks: Sweet Stamps Ink Spots (dandelion, Montego Bay), Zig Clean Clear Brush (#50 yellow, #46 mid green, #22 carmine red)
Accessories: Sweet Stamps (Tangrams stencil) waterbrush, A Muse Studio (white embossing powder, Static Magic)
Darice: Sequins (frosted, clear)
