Hydrangea for you

Afternoon - and thank you for popping in
to see me today on my blog.

Have been busy playing with Serif CraftArtist 2 this morning 
and hopefully you will see my results next month.... on what I have been doing today.

But in the mean time here is my card for today. 

I have used the new AlteNew Hydrangea stamp for this card. 

I started off with a white piece of paper. 

Stamped the flower image in several colours and made a mask
from a bit of paper to stamp the leaves. 

I had a bit of colour still on my mat so I sprayed with water and mopped up the 
colours to make the "hallo" background. 

Had a rummage around in my stash and found my glossy Accents 
bit bunged up and added centers to the flowers. 

Added a butterfly and mat and layered onto Slate Blue card stock 
finally onto a white card blank. 

Added a sentiment from the Hydrangea stamp set.....

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for your visit today. 

The weather is terrible here in North Devon, rain and very strong winds.
They forecast a wind called Doris later for today / tomorrow
so it will be a case of being in doors again. 

A few daffodils are out and getting battered around.

Nature does have alot to answer to but it is a marvel how things 
survive, dont you think.

Well got roast chicken to cook so best be going 

Have a good day

  3. A super image and great card Pen, I watched this one demoed and though I needed it but resisted as I have two Altenew sets still waiting for ink but tour pretty card might have broken my resolve. Many thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts challenge.

  8. Absolutely gorgeous. You have coloured the hydrangea beautifully. No need for rusty nails in the soil . Lol. Love the addition of the glossy accents to the centres of each flower cluster. I can see I'm going to have to give in and buy this stamp. Thank you for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
