Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge - Brushless Watercolor

The 7th Challenge from Tim Holtz's book "Compendium of Curiosities 2" is up on Linda's blog. This time the technique is Brushless Watercolor on pg. 49 of the book. As an added bonus, eclectic Paperie is offering a 425 gift certificate to one lucky participant in this week's challenge.
I love this brushless watercolor technique. I used chipped sapphire Distress Stain and tilted the paper to let the color run to the left and bottom of my paper.
 To turn this into an atc, I stamped flourishes using silver Encore! Ink and used this ink to color the edges.
 Stamped a saying with black India Ink and added a ballerina image.
