Several ideas for watercolored cards...

Watercolored roses then used flex fountain pen to outline.

Both of these are dry embossed watercolor paper, for the left I watercolored in the depressed area and for the right I colored the raised area.

Watercolored this Spellbinders Tammy Tutterow stamp with Martha Stewart Glitter Markers.

Hand sketched the watercolored card to the left and below is another example of coloring in an embossed depressed area.
