Newton's Nook Challenge - Watercolor!

Welcome Back to Crafty Time 4U!
Today I have a card that I created for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge.
Newton's Nook challenges had made me try a variety of new things, for example, I am usually a critter person, I like stamps with cutesy animals and such, but with Newton's Nook I first tried flowers, I stamped them, embossed them, and watercolor them.
For challenge #18 I experimented a little more with embossing paste, and now for the first time I colored a detailed stamp image using water colors. I am used to Copic markers, but I'm telling you, detail water coloring was a very nice experience! It's very relaxing, you're not so worry about the blending coming out perfectly, I think you control everything when it comes to watercolor. Please, don't quote me because I'm very inexperience with water colors!
One more thing that is new to me with Newton's Nook, is the tabby cat coloring. I think, us paper crafters. tent to color cats, dogs, and other pets just the way our own pets look like, so I always color my cats sort of grayish. Lately I had colored about three tabby cats, and I love it! I hope my fur baby doesn't get jealous (LOL).    
Here is the card, I really hope you'll like it! All supplies are linked bellow
