Botanicals with Gingersnaps


Over on Gingersnaps this week is the theme Botanicals. So use anything that grows. I have chosen this lovely stamp from Elusive Images, available from Graphicus, of a Hydrangea. I love this stamp with the script behind.

First I coloured some card with some of the new Tim Holtz distress inks. Something called ....velvet and....moss and some Milled Lavender. Then stamped with image with archival black. Then I used the Tim Holtz distress inks to water colour the image further, using ....velvet, spun sugar, worn lipstick and a little Aged Mahogany. Layered it onto an embossed cuttlebug paper and others from my stash. Used my favourite edge punch from Martha Stewart and I thought the ribbon just set the colours off perfectly.

this is so nice and elegant........I love hydrangeas...I just found out that their color depends on their soil....I kept buying what I thought were pink ones and they would be purple......live and learn I guess......Melinda
