Bokeh it is!

This card is completely inspired by this week's Runway Inspired Challenge to the very last detail -

The grey coat, the houndstooth scarf, the patterns and colors on the dress and even the buttons on the coat!
I tried the bokeh technique for the first time and love the result. Instead of putting color on wet watercolor paper I simply sprayed my water color paper with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst sprays and then let the colors run into each other by spritzing some water. The colors I used were - Delphinium Turquoise, Sweet Violet Purple Teal,  Hottie Potottie Hot Pink.
My card is based on this sketch
from As you see it Challenge #089
Also playing along with:
