Spring Time Card

I made a spring card that could also be used as a Mother's Day card, using this really great PrintWorks stamp that is so versatile, I love it. I stamped it onto watercolor paper with VersaMark ink and embossed it with black glitter embossing powder. I then colored it with Twinkling H2O's that I am finally getting the hang of, I usually use watercolor pencils but I love the shimmer of the Twinkling H2O's. Heart brads were added to the top corners, then layered onto purple, yellow and black papers and mounted to a purple card that has been stamped with dots in wisteria ColorBox Chalk ink.
