Typically I do this technique of embossing an image and then sponging on colors on plain white cardstock. For this one, I tried water color paper in the card at top. The results were very similiar. You get a little more texture showing through on the watercolor paper.
The bottom of the card is vellum stamped using Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Whisper White.
