For my project, I used Twinkling H2O watercolor paints to make the background on the stamped image and also to "paint" the white satin ribbon to make a matching shade of blue. I stamped the image and embossed it with black embossing powder, then lightly brushed the background with two shades of blue and a tiny bit of lavender.
Twinkling H2O's are solid watercolors that come in little tiny lidded pots. You spritz them with water and then use a paintbrush to apply them to your project. (You can also use a waterbrush if you prefer.) You can control the depth of color by the amount of water you use, and the colors have a nice subtle shimmer to them. They're a nice way to add a little "extra" to your project, if you just want a little bit of shine and shimmer.
