CR84FN48 - Clovers and Bees

 Today is a new challenge at  CR84FN.   The colors are  lovely and remind me of spring.


I used the sweet Our Daily Bread Designs Simple Things set to create my card:



I stamped the Honeycomb background using a purple dye ink onto the background of two panels. The clover was stamped twice using gray Versafine. The image was colored using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush.  The sentiment is from the same Simple Things set and is stamped in black ink. 


Here are the beautiful colors:

For all the details on the challenge this week go to the CR84FN blog.
