Water colour stencil backgrounds..1

On Online Card classes watercolour for card makers, Tim Holtz conducted an awesome class!
Here are the panels he inspired me create...

and here is a card that I made...

The sofa and and cushion are from PTI and the sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp "where your heart is" stamp set. 
The stencil used is from Crafters Workshop. 
I used Tim Holtz distress ink, Crushed olive and water to create the background panel. 
For the card background, I simply applied some of the same ink on an acrylic  block, sptrized it with water and stamped on the card!
I inked up the sentiment, spritzed it with water and stamped it. I found it to be too watery, so I stamped over it a couple of times till I was happy with the colour.

I am submitting this card for the "Less is more" Lucky dip week 174 challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
Good night!
