Watercolour & Gold!

Hi! I'm loving all the soft and whimsical watercolour cards around at the moment so I've made one myself. This one uses various Distress Ink colours and a bit of gold mist. I really liked the gold so I added the sentiment embossed in gold and a background strip stamped in Delicata gold ink - love! Then I coloured the back of the little vellum butterfly so it kept the colours soft. I'm entering this into the weeks Case Study Challenge - my paler version! And also this month Virginias View Challenge of water colouring. Thanks for looking!

Sentiment - Sweet Stamp Shop 'Elegant Sentiments'
Stamps - Hero Arts 'Antique Flowers & Butterflies' & Kaisercraft 'Script Texture'
Ink - Distress Inks (various)
Cardstock -Stampin' Up 'Regal Rose'
Other - Heidi Swapp Colour Shine 'Gold Lame', vellum, machine stitching & gold & white embossing powders

Beth, this is just a beautiful card!! I am just starting with watercolour and just wondering if you embossed the gold parts first or watercolour first?
