Modern Hydrangeas, PP331


Hi everyone! It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week our wonderful leader Nance is hostess, and she has a gorgeous, elegant color combination for us. Though I love this color combo it took me a while to decide on a subject matter, but I finally settled on (ahem..) flowers!


I had a brand new Altenew stamp set sitting on my desk just begging to be inked up. As this is a layering set, I first heat embossed the outline with copper embossing powder. Then I stamped the next two layers with blush colors, and the final layer with copper pigment ink. As the pigment ink takes a while to dry, I had time to move the ink around a little with a Versamarker and add a little more detail. I have to say I really love the end result, and these hydrangea stamps are just gorgeous. The two coppers are so pretty together too, one shiny and one shimmery.

  7. Sandy, hydrangeas are my absolute favorite flower and I never would have pictured them in this color combo, but this card is beautiful! I was a little bit surprised when I did my card for this challenge that gray and copper actually DO go together! : )
