Hydrangea flower


Hydrangea flower:
I thought I'd try a different technique for this card.

The hydrangea flower stamp is HeroArts. I stamped the blue card with bleach (well, toilet cleaner actually) then when dry, gently hand coloured it with watercolour.  Overstamped  the corner Merci word stamp (Heidi Swapp) in black Versafine ink.
Diecut the blue with stitched rectangle die, punched the corners with Martha Stewart punch.

I didn't want to add anything else as I think it would distract from the flower.  I am really pleased with the finished piece.

Thank you for looking, and if you left me a comment, merci.

Entered in the challenges:
Get Creative: 18 Flower;
Stamping Sensation: Dies&Punches (+Stamp)
