Because I Care

 I had to have this beautiful stamp set by Stampin Up- and it was gifted to me by a sweet friend : )  So, when I went to make a special card for a friend- I took it out and inked it up!  I just LOVE hydrangia's!
 The background- you guessed it- Technique Junkies technique called Colorwash Alcohol. The image is colored with Copics, then I added dots if ink using Itty Bitty Backgrounds-also from SU.


Challenges:
Bearly Mine- Anything Goes
Paperminutes- No Designer Paper
Ribbon Carousel- Sympathy card
Try it on Tuesday- Anything Goes
Twisted Tuesday- Sympathy/Thinking of you card
The Artistic Stamper- Splatters and Speckles : )

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Shelly
Possibly my all time favourite are hydrangeas.
This card is so delicate and you captured the beauty of their blooms with your colouring.

I love hydrangeas and your coloring on this card is superb! I have that stamp but have never inked it up -- can you believe that from someone who adores purple? You've inspired me to get it out and use it. :-D
