{IBS} Best Wishes

Morning my sweet friends.  
Thank you for stopping by today!!!  Today I am sharing a card I made using Inspired by Stamping stamp.
This is my ABSOLUTE favorite stamp set.  I love them all, but my mind keeps coming up with so many ideas for this set!  So here is another one of those ideas!!  hehe
Today I am using Spring Lilacs stamp set. 
I love the texture on this card.  I colored the Lilac stamp using my distress markers.  I selected the lightest colors first, them I spritzed the image with a little water.  Once it dried, I used my distress ink pads and stamped the stamp again, using the darker colors this time.  I spritzed again and stamped on top of the first image.  The hardest part about playing with watercolors is the waiting.  LOL!!! 

 The final step to coloring the lilacs is to add a very light color and wet brush to fill in the flowers.  I did this, just so it wouldn't wash out and the lines would still be visible!  
After all that play with water, I embossed the image with a very textured embossing folder, added a little bit of distress ink and TAH-DAH!! :)  Create the frame and added the dimensional pearls for a very glam look. 
I also used the new stamp: Petite Banners and Fancy Labels 3

I would like to share this card in the following challenges:
