Another water color technique

This was an action I got from the internet, I think from adobe actions exchange and know that a lady created the effect, unfortunately I do not her name at this time for I would like to give her credit for a different watercolor effect. If this technique has been posted before, excuse the duplication. It uses some filters I'm not that familar with but here's how it goes and you can make your own action very easily. For PS 6 and 7 I know for sure:
1. Filter> other> maximum> 1 pixel radius
2. Filter> other> minimum> 1 pixel radius
3. Filter> blur> smart blur Radius 75, Threshold 65.3, Quality high, Mode normal.
4. Filter> noise> median> Radius 2 pixels.

At this point, it was the end of her action. I proceeded to make a duplicate layer and on it Filter> artistic> poster edges. Added a canvas texture, which doesn't show up on the small file posted here, to the picture and a frame from my Extensis photoframe collection...Dave
