Ultraviolet is the Pantone color of 2018, so a Purple challenge or two is bound to pop up.
First is the Less is More challenge this fortnight.

For my card I used a new Katzelkraft stamp (monstres des carpates) or Carpatian monsters and the sentiment is from Impression Obsession (c17150 character defects)

I stamped both with Versafine onyx black ink onto Schut hot pressed and smooth watercolor paper. Then colored the image with Talens Ecoline (507 ultramarine violet and 548 ultra red violet and a bit of 717 cool grey)

 As my watercolor panels are always slightly narrower, I fill the gap with a matching washi tape.

Mounted the watercolor panel with foamtape and adhered it to the cardbase.
