Peyton's Birthday Card

I made this cute card for my daughter's fried who is having a birthday party tomorrow. I let my daughter pick which stamp she wanted me to use and she picked this cute Miss Anya . I knew I wanted to use my SU Razzleberry Lemonade DP, so I colored her with my aqua painter and SU in Color Markers. I used the sketch from Delightful Sketches Sketch # 7. I love everything about this card except for the DP, lol. I think it looks to busy in the background, maybe I should have just chosen one DP and used cardstock on the bands.

Do any of you know of a good watercolor tutorial you could recommend? I only have SU color pencils, a few SU markers and ink pads. I know I need Copics but have to wait on those. Any help will truly be appreciated.
