Mother with a Little Glitter

I created 2 different cards using the same color scheme and image. I just changed it up a little bit. I created the flower image by coloring the rubber stamp with watercolor crayons, misting the rubber with water, and then stamping the image. Once the stamped image dried I added the sentiment and glitter. I think I like Happy Mother's Day card better than the window card, and will be mass producing this card for the Monthly card exchange.

The Close-up

Let me know what you think. I love reading your comments and greatly appreciate them all.

Paper: River Rock cardstock (SU! - Retired), Cream cardstock (Neenah)
Ink: Basic Black (SU!)
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes and Happy Mother's Day sentiment (SU!), Mother sentiment (PTI)
Extras: Watercolor Crayons (SU!), Taffeta Ribbon (SU!), Dazzling Diamond Glitter (SU!), Die (Spellbinders), Corner Rounder (SU!)
Notes: I used Green Galore, Always Artichoke, Tempting Turquoise and Elegant Eggplant watercolor crayons. I mixed bold brights and rich regals in order to subdue the bold color and still have an image that stands out against the white paper.

This is beautiful...and simple! I have this set, but haven't used it for much. I'm going to have to copy the use of the watercolor crayons and glitter. It's just lovely!
