Today's card features the gorgeous Hydrangea Large rubber stamp. I love the exquisite detail in this stamp!
Creating this card was fun and easy! I first stamped the hydrangea image onto Copic X-Press It paper using MFT's Extreme Black Ink. I added the Thinking of You sentiment above my hydrangeas. I used my Copic markers to color my hydrangeas. Even though I love blue hydrangeas, I wanted to do something a bit different here so I went to the internet and searched for images of hydrangeas. I found this one I really liked and tried to replicate the colors with my markers. I made sure to add some BG0000 around the perimeter of my image to give a hint of sky.
After the coloring was finished, I die-cut my panel and then mounted it with foam tape onto some green polka-dot paper to match the hydrangea's leaves. I love using foam tape to give extra dimension to my cards! I finished with a little bow made from lime-green jute twine and some little blue "pearls".
As always, a great big THANK YOU for visiting with me today! Look forward to seeing everyone again very soon! Good luck on the blog hop!!
