I would love any advice on the most effective way to use the water color filter.

Best advice on most any filter is to work large.
Start with the largest, highest resolution image you can. The filters quite often will not provide good results on small images or low resolution images.
2) PRINT the results to evaluate. Many times the screen view is very misleading. Printed results sometimes show the filtered image in a much different light.
3) Check out these two plug-ins which raise the bar on Adobe's watercolor filter:

photoshop filters offer a wide array of effects and techniques that mimic traditional media -- like the Watercolor filter. Watercolor has long been a defining Photoshop filter, though the crucial illusion of one color running into its neighbor is only partly achieved.
