Water coloring with distress inks

This is my second card. I had used the waffle flower - lotus stamps here. I stamped using the squeezed lemonade on a water colors paper and heat embossed using clear EP, and then masked it and stamped the lily pad in crushed olives and heat embossed.
 I then used the same distressed inks to add the color using a wet brush.
I think I have messed up the lotus a bit, while trying to give a shade...and here I am sharing it after messing it up ;) Do you think you guys can overlook that I messed it up...
Since I decided to share it with you guys anyways, I proceed with sponging the base with tumbled glass, and also added the dragon flies using the same ink. Added the fuzzy cut lotus using foam adhesive.
I stamped the stalk in crushed olive and colored using a pencil. Could have stamped another one, but I just wanted a single stalk going up, thinking that the another one is behind this one. It was one of my decisions, which I always question, and go with the flow of my creative process.  The sentiment is from the same set.

As I don't have any of your stamps, unfortunately not available in my part of the world. I did looked at the free digis, but couldn't think of water coloring , so adding with another stamps.
