Non-traditional wedding card

Hello to you all! Today I wanted you to show you a weddding card that I made for a crafty friend. Well, it didn't quite turn out the way I wanted because the watercolor background was waaaay to intense (kind of looks like flames?). But least these are happy colors? :)

I stamped the three Amigos from Mama Elephant on Neenah Solar White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers (raccoon: IG1, IG2, IG6, IG8, IG10, fox: Blender, IG1, OR1, OR2, OR3, act: EB1, EB2, GB8, GB10).
For the background I used Canson Mixed Media paper and applied quite some water with a brush. Using my Gansai Tambi watercolors (36, 31, 33, 40) I tried to blend the colors together and dried them with my heat tool. I guess I just used too much of the watercolors. These colors are highly pigmented and for a softer touch you should use more water. 

The sentiment "Happy wedding day" is from Altenew and I really like this big, big happy sentiment. I stamped it with Archival Jet Black ink after the watercolors were dry.
To assemble the card, I adhered a strip of red cardstock on a white cardbase and over it the watercolor panel. Using my Crop-a-dile I rounded the corners of the card using 1/2". To adhere the fox I used 3D foam squares. The other to critters were glued on the card with liquid glue.
