Happy Hydrangea...

Happy birthday hydrangea

Hello and welcome,
I did this card a few days ago. It's a hydrangea stamp I rescued from a thrift store! I inked the top in distress ink purple and the bottom in distress ink green and stamped it on Strathmore cold press watercolor paper. I used distress markers and a Wink of Stella pen that I had added water to to color with. I'm obviously still learning my watercoloring technique! I went for a very purple hydrangea this time (my last one was blues and purple and can be found here because it was before I started blogging). The background is watercolored as well in distress blue. I used an older Stampin' Up greeting and kraft cardstock too.

It would have been a good card for my mom because she loved purple, but I lost her almost two years ago... that's when I changed my favorite color to purple... in her honor!

I've been being kept busy learning a new job and so hope to get a couple of posts up during this week! I also have a moose post to put up with more moose with twin calves video! Stay tuned!

God bless and have a great day!
