Hydrangea

One of my new stamps is this beauty from Hero Arts - Hydrangea.
Isn´t it just beautiful and elegant?
I bought this lovely pink hydrangea the other day and used it as inspiration
for my card below.
Beautiful color!
I used a white paper for the background distressed along the edge with
The Hydrangea was colored with ProMarkers before cutting it out and to give my card a little vintage look I used my new Nestabilities Label 11 on some old music paper. That paper goes perfect with the twine in a nature color that add a rustic element to the card. I´m quite contented with this card myself :)
Enjoy your day!
Sanne

Sanne, det er bare et smukt kort. Hvor er det en god måde at bruge det stempel på. Jeg købte stemplet for noget siden, men synes at det er ligt svært at bruge, så mange tak for inspirationen.

Uh, en flot hotensia du har købt. En flot sart lyserød. Hotensia er en af mine yndligsblomster og det god ved den er at den kan sættes ud i haven bagefter.

God lørdag.
