Twinkling Hydrangea

the impression obsession challenge is ‘favourite technique’ and mine is watercolouring. i used twinkling H2Os to create a wash on some watercolour paper to die cut the petals with the IO hydrangea die (DIE044-Y); i painted the leaves and using the same twinks, i painted the edges of watercolour paper to create the mat and had fun splattering the leftovers on cardstock. finally, i added blue stickles to the petal centres.

i’m also submitting this card to these other challenges:
stamp and create – ready for spring
little red wagon – #226 yearning for spring!
virginia’s vew challenge #1 – watercolouring
loves rubberstamps – anything goes

thanks for popping by.
