Card for Holi

Hey people!! How are you all doing? I am feeling a bit low since last week. Not been well and not been able to craft this weekend. That makes me even more low :( Just spent the weekend sitting at home doing nothing! I guess sometimes this is required to get the mojo back.
So today I am sharing a card that I made last weekend for Holi. I was too excited to see the ICR challenge for Holi. The use of misting technique reminded me of the brush painting we used to do in school.  
Let me show you how I created the bg. You must have seen this kind of nylon net on various bottles. I cut it open for use. Since I wanted to make 3 panels in different colors, I took 3 strips of CS and sprayed on them separately.
I have used ordinary water colors and toothbrush for misting. I was quite happy with the result and have thought of many more ideas to use this net. The splashes used in 3 colors are hand-drawn and cut.
Let me know how you all liked my card and my tecnique :)
