Marina Mist Hydrangea


Happy Wednesday,

Every time I have inked up this beautiful image from the Because I care set, I have used purples and pinks. As I absolutely love the new Marina Mist shade, I wanted to see how the hydrangea would look in blue. I think it looks gorgeous in this color.

I stamped the image once on Very Vanilla using Marina Mist and Old Olive. I then stamped just the flower, cut it out, sprayed it with Champagne Shimmer Mist, added a few pearls, and adhered it with dimensionals.

The layers were distressed and sponged a bit. I used Marina Mist to brayer the Tulip embossing folder (there's a layer inside too). A little Victoria Crochet Trim, a Vanilla Rosette (sponged with MM), and some pearls finished off the card.

Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow I'll have a little blogerversary candy.

This image is beautiful with that color. Love the embossing folder you used to frame it and the vintage looking lacy ribbon too. Gorgeous work! Best, Curt

It is absolutely glorious Lisa! The pearls, the lace, the border- stunning! Dang... I have been trying to stay away from this set, but you're making it so difficult! Maybe it will find it's way into my cart next time ;) hugs~

Lisa, This is beautiful. You are so right that the flowers are stunning in blue. I really have to pull out this SU embossing folder. You really made it look so pretty.

Was für eine herrliche Hortensien-Karte! Wunderschön mit dem Prägerand und dem Einsatz der Spitzenborte!
