Hydrangea-Thinking of You

Spring is in the Air
What a glorious flower the Hydrangea is...comes in so many beautiful colours.
I began with distressing and blending three mini white card squares with various distress inks.
I then stamped parts of the Hydrangea stamp onto the three mini squares using Memento Ink and to finish I layered them onto my card.
I loved the colours of the card and the gorgeous Hydrangea stamp.

I was inspired by the following challenges and will be entering my card into them:

Yes, Beverley! I agree! I love hydrangeas so much! They were my grammy's favourite flower. I enjoy your card and the stamping and sponging you did. It is very pretty and lovely. Thank you for joining me at The Challenge.

Green and kraft are a great combo Beverley. It's interesting that you cut the squares first but I did it last with same end result. :)

Thank you for your kind and generous comments. Most of the techniques I am doing are new to me and I am enjoying joining in your challenges very much x

Thank you Julie for your lovely comments. I started out with the intention of a more aqua colour but when it developed onto the green I really liked it...quite botanical I thought. As I am quite a newbie I thought it best to cut the squares out first so I could keep more control but I will try your way next time...always up for learning more and more x Thanks again.

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I just loved how it turned out and can't wait to try out different colours etc. I am quite new to doing challenges and I do so enjoy how it pushes you to try different things. Thanks again x

This is lovely!
Thanks so much
