It could be that you Need to add "QTextEdit{ %1 }" to your spec.
Rather what I prefer to do is set the stylesheet for the whole app in the main.cpp.

To specifically target this textbox and not every textbox, you can use:
QTextEdit#objectName { }

I realise that using the colon implies a compilied in resource but this resource exits and can be used to set the background image on a push button
Any other ideas?

You've understanding it fine. But the colon in the filename means, it's a complied-in resource. While you develop/test, I would suggest taking the colon out and using the file system. 
All you have to do without using style sheets is subclass QTextEdit then re implement draw, draw your water mark, then cal the base class paint via QTextEdit::paintEvent()
