Here is my card:
Here's the Design Team:


Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.

Details on my card: I used a stencil and watercolors to make my bg - I did a color wash and then I splattered some of the other colors I used on the paper after it dried. To color up my hydrangea, I mixed my colors on a large block sprayed it with water and dragged my image through the ink. Then I put on some Inka Gold Metalic rub in silver and then added some gems. Fun and super easy.

Hugz!

  3. The variation in color in that hydrangea makes it look so realistic. We had hydrangeas when we lived in Pennsylvania, and they varied in color depending on the acidity of the soil. Beautiful card!

  6. Love this! It always amazes me when you say you run the image through the inks. If I did that, it would be a muddy mess.

  17. Love Hydrangeas! My grandmother used to put old nails in the ground around her Hydrangeas to make them turn blue. They usually got a mottling of color like you image. Love this card. - Jim
