Mod Squad challenge, Shadow Stamping

Just a quick post today with the card that I did for the Mod Squad Challenge.  The challenge was Shadow Stamping.  I watched many videos on You Tube before I did my card.  There seem to be many ways to do this.  I developed my own way, because I can. 
So here is it.
Using water color paper, I heat embossed some script, just in a few areas of the card.  With Distressed inks of Picked Raspberry,Wild Honey, and Mustard Seed and water, that was spritzed on the paper,I created the BG that you see.  I didn't feel that there was enough script, so I stamped some with Antique Linen in the upper right.  I stamped the flower from Reason to Smile, Stampin Up, with Always Artichoke ink, and shadow stamped again just the flower.  Here is were I made my own technique.  I mixed white acrylic paint with some of the Picked Raspberry and smooched the stamp into that and stamped over the original. Then I added three pink pearls to make it Girly!  I don't know where I got the sentiment stamp.  It is old and the rest of the sentiment reads like this.  I am woman, I'm invincible, I'm Tired
I will probably put that in the inside.  I am loving watercolor projects and I am going to sit down right after I post this and do some more. 
Have a great day, and I really appreciate your comments.  I know that it takes time to do them.
