Because I Care

Friday, March 30, 2012

Some time ago whilst trawling the web I came across this really striking card by Monica Gale.  I just adore the colour combination and way the hydrangea head from last year's 'Because I Care' stamp set lends itself perfectly to being coloured.

As inspired by Monica's card I too have stamped matching hydrangea imagery onto the Pacific Point backing card. Whilst Monica coloured her flower with Stampin' Write Markers, I have used my favourite colouring technique of Aqua Painters on Watercolour Paper. Here I have mixed some buds in Tempting Turquoise with the primary colour Pacific Point on the flower.  The leaves have been done in Always Artichoke.  The rest is purely me guided by the below sketch from Freshly Made Sketches which I have flipped on its side to best suit the imagery featured here.
