PS Watercolor Effect over Ink Pen Illustration  - student project

I've been using Photoshop since the mid-90s, but have found that I tend to get in a rut of using the same techniques over and over again in my work. Sometimes that means having a lot of inefficient processes, so I've been utilizing skillshare to remind myself of different methods that I either have forgotten or never used in the first place.  I drew this back in November when I was first learning how to use a calligraphy pen correctly and thought it might be interesting to see how the Watercolor Effect studied in this class worked with it.
