Thank you so much to The Flower Challenge Team for selecting my card for Top Pick for the August Challenge.
Hello and welcome
My card features one of my favourite flowers, the hydrangeas. I love their gorgeous colours and their large flower heads covered with small flowers. It is one of my oldest and well used stamps.
I started by stamping the image on a piece of watercolour card, masking and restamping to both to left and right to give the impression of a large bunch of blooms.
These were then watercolured using Distress Inks and Tombow Pens. Centres used a gold pen. The panel was trimmed and sprayed with Glimmer Mist to add some sparkle and texture.
I had decided to die cut Birthday using MFT – “Celebration” die set and use the eclipse technique. However, I decided I like the white look as the image is so busy. Using some white shimmer card, I recut the word and adhered it to the card.
The panel was adhered to dark blue card and then the white card front.
The sentiment was white heat embossed using a section of a sentiment from MFT – Sweetest Somebunny Stamp set.
I love playing with this image.
Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.
I look forward to seeing what you create this week!
