Pin-Sights Guest Call, Take Two

I'm back with a second card to enter for Ellen Hutson's Pin-Sights guest designer call. (Pick me! Pick me! :D) This time I'm playing with the Mondo Hydrangea: 



It really IS mondo in size! I tried to highlight that by having it escape the side borders of the background panel. Confession: I have yet to take the time to watercolour this flower properly, even though I've seen many beautiful examples across the interwebs. I take the easy route and let watercolour powders do the work. 



I also used my green powder for the background. A scripty die cut hello seemed to finish this off perfectly. 
Now that my self-imposed July ban on Christmas card making is over, I am playing around with a few ideas for a third and final entry to this call. Stay tuned! 

Supplies: white & indigo cardstock, Strathmore watercolour paper, Essentials by Ellen Mondo Hydrangea stamps & dies, Versamark ink, Hero Arts white embossing powder, Magenta Nuance cerulean blue & grass green watercolour powders, Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold and the Happy die, glue dots

Pin It Now!
