Pink Hydrangeas

welcome to some new followers! thank you for joining me on my creative journey!

i’m playing along with the impression obsession challenge theme of pink and green – one of my favourite colour combinations.

after the hydrangea (IO DIE044-Y) was die cut with 140 lb. cold pressed watercolour paper, i painted the leaves with twinkling H2Os, used the small end of a creative expressions mini smoothie (reviewed here) to colour the petals with distress ink and added pink stickles to the centres. i stamped the sentiment (IO CL465) and splattered the same pink twink onto watercolour paper and attached it to a green base.

for the second card i sponged the edges of the petals with distress ink and added stickles to the centres as well.

i’m also playing along with these challenges:

Simon Says Wednesday – Texture
As You Like It Challenge- Favourite Colouring Medium (&why): watercolour painting with twinkling H2Os on hot pressed w/c paper is my favourite; it’s relaxing and i love making my own colours.

thanks for popping by.
