Make Your Own Magic

Hey! Today I have a card to share that I made just because I wanted to watercolor some hydrangeas!  This Mondo Hydrangea set by Essentials By Ellen was perfect because of it's large size.  You can get a lot of color variation on one flower just like the real thing. 
 
We have so many beautiful hydrangeas blooming in our yard now.  I just love them!
 
 
I white heat embossed the flowers on watercolor paper.  I added color with pinks, blue, and purple distress ink.   Once they were dry, I die cut them with the coordinating die.  They were a little warped, but I liked the dimension it gave to the card so I didn't try to force them to lie flat.  I wanted to add black as an accent so I added black dots to the center of each flower, black ink to word die cut, and a black banner at the top.  Honestly, I tried stamping the sentiment in black directly onto the white cardstock and I messed up! lol  Had to hide it with the banner.
  
 
Thanks for stopping by today.  I have linked supplies used or similar below {affiliate links used}  Have a great day!
