HYDRANGEA

The current Ellen Hutson's Pinsights challenge has some pretty blues and grays for inspiration - so I chose to use those colors with the mondo hydrangea stamp (a favorite of mine).


I watercolored the white embossed flower with my Zigs and a damp brush, stamped the flower again in a soft gray onto a light gray base, added the sentiment from the same set in black and heat embossed in clear, added some clear raindrops, rounded the corner and done!!



Thanks for visiting today and love to read your kind comments.
