Never More than a Thought Away

Happy Easter! Welcome back to week II of the CR84FN challenge.I was inspired to create a card using watercolors for the Inspiration Journal challenge of watercolor.

I started with a water colored  background with smears of the beautiful pastels: 

The background was created by smearing distress inks on the craft map and picked up with waterbrush across the surface.

The flowers were stamped and colored with watercolor pencils. All the stamps are Hero Arts.


Here are the lovely colors:
