It’s time for Flourishes May Sneak Peeks! Are you ready for some new fun sets? Today we’re previewing Hydrangeas—a gorgeous new set from Marcella Hawley who has captured the beauty of these flowers perfectly.
I have several hydrangeas in my garden but my favorite by far is the old fashioned one I brought from my childhood home many, many years ago. Being the old-fashioned kind, it’s blue, so I went with that for my color scheme.
Then I cut it out with a Labels Twenty Two Nestabilities die and my Grand Calibur, then sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and popped it up on foam dots. The patterned paper I used was from my stash and is old, but I love it with this image. I added some olive green twine and some blue Dew Drops for accents, then stamped the sentiment on a Petite Oval Nestabilities die cut, also popped up on foam. I wanted to keep my card design fairly simple to let that gorgeous flower shine.
Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set and the hydrangea again, offset and stamped off once, on Classic Ivory card stock.
So, what do you think of this set? Just fabulous, right? Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you today...
