Water coloring - Coneflowers and Great Spangled Fritillary

I made a card for the splitcoaststampers.com  color challenge. CC529.  I knew I wanted to make a flower card with those colors. I water colored this card using crayola markers, water and a paintbrush. I used the colors from the challenge and added my dessert of green, but my card looks so different from the others in the gallery that I'm almost afraid to post it because I'm not sure that they will see the colors.  I used these two images as my inspiration for my card:

I made a video showing the progression of my coloring.
