Water colour Hydrangea!
























I have found a new challenge over at the Stampalot blog and decided to have a go this months, the title is "Your Crafty Passion" and my passion is I love to layer up my stamps and I also love distress inks and emboss resist.  Here is my card using four Hero Arts stamps.  The background is the Newspaper stamp I have then stamped the frame on top.  Next I stamped the Poetry background stamp on piece of paper and embossed in white. I distressed with Tea dye ink then inked the Hydrangea stamp with Rusty Hinge and Bundled sage, spritzed with water and stamped on the script.  I cut out the centre of the frame and adhered it to the frame image on my card.  Lastly I added the butterfly.  Definitely not a CAS card but I can't resist a busy card!!

Another wet day here, wish the summer would arrive...

Gorgeous! I just love this hydrangea stamp, and with the watercolour effect...sigh. So nice.
We've had lots of rain, but it's coming mainly as thundershowers after hot hot days. I'm getting pretty tired of the 90% humidity...blech. So you have my sympathy.

I love lots of layers too, Sally! This card is a beauty - the white embossing and the watercolored hydrangea are so pretty inside that frame.
