Hydrangea Dream


Joy has come up with a fun technique, using a stamp dipped in watery ink.  See her original creation here, and then go on over to her blog to see her tutorial on how she did it.  I couldn't wait to try this technique, and decided to use my Hydrangea stamp to make my background, along with worn lipstick and mustard seed distress inks.  This was lots of fun, and I think I'll be trying it again using other stamps.  Joy used a sunburst lace stamp.  Anette used a different doily.  And here's another one by Sandi.  Beautiful, aren't they?

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps K5376 Hydrangea, S4878 Old Letter Writing, digital flutterbies, Impression Obsession clear set WP25 Spring for sentiment, worn lipstick and mustard seed distress inks, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Palette Burnt Umber ink for script, colored pencils for stem and leaves, and details on butterflies
