Yes, it certainly does look hand painted and mirrors the colours of hydrangeas in our garden. I couldn’t resist taking a photo of one of the cards with the backdrop of a bloom.
The basket of flowers from our garden brings Pete’s and my Mum into the picture. Their flowers and love of gardening are my inspiration for these cards. I’m sure our hydrangea plants all derive from their cuttings.
Joan, Pete’s mum, grew pink hydrangeas as they lived in Bayside while Mum, Cath, was predominantly a blue girl when living in the Yarra Ranges. We are lucky in Mount Evelyn, that we can grow different colours. I’m sure its all dependent on the soil and light.
Hydrangea Hill Suite
The Hydrangea Hill Suite comprises Hydrangea Haven Bundle of stamp set and dies (save 10%), Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Acetate, Gorgeous Grape 3/8″Ribbon, Pastel Pearls, and Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.
Yep, we are so lucky at SU have very talented artists and designers. The other DSP designs in the pack are equally stunning and I’m looking forward to playing with some designs for these in the next few days.
Techniques and Designs
I also used the ‘baby wipes and Ink Refills technique to create my hydrangea colours on some other creations. You might notice the little petal die cuts…. I used paper I made using the same brew of colours; blues and purples. These two cards graduate from simple stamping to a more intricate design using layering and dies.
Here is a close up of the die-cut hydrangea flower.
These cards both feature the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.
