Delicate Asters Vase

Hi friends, hope everyone is having a great week so far.  Here is some Heartfelt Creations inspiration for you.  I had some fun doing some watercoloring on this beautiful image.  I started by stamping the image and flowers with London Fog Memento ink on watercolor paper and colored with Distress re-inkers.
After coloring all the flowers I cut them with the coordinating dies and shaped them for dimension.
Thank you so much for stopping by, if you have some time make sure to stop by the HC Blog and take a peek at all the gorgeous projects created by the design team.
