This is a color challenge and I came as close as I could using my stash!!
I finally ordered some Penny Black stamps and they came in - so I had to put them to use right away! I decided to start with the background stamp and embossed it in white on watercolor paper. Then I took three colors of Distress Inks and painted in the background. I was 'roughly' following a SCS sketch challenge, but I strayed away from it - so I ended up stamping a PB Hydrangea on watercolor paper and used my Distress Inks again to color in.
I embossed the card front with a PTI impression plate and because it didn't come out that great - I added white dots to highlight it a bit more. I added some ribbon and decided to leave the sentiment off for now. One reason is, I wasn't sure where I wanted to put it!!!
Here are the colors of the challenge:
My hydrangeas at home are blooming SO NICELY! Here's a picture with my handsome model, Buddy!
Stay tuned for my next post!!
