I've seen some cards like this recently so I thought I'd make my own version... besides, I was itching to watercolor. :)
I started by inking up the round ornament stamp with Versamagic chalk ink, then spritzing before I stamped it to my watercolor panel. I masked the image and did the same with the vintage ornament. After the images were dry, I added several layers of color and shading with QoR watercolors.
The whole panel was sprayed with a pearlescent mister, and then splattered lightly with more watercolor paint. These are the stamp sets I used - they also have accompanying dies:
