Best of Flowers - Hydrangea

Over the next couple of weeks I will be showing some cards made with a new set of stamps launched by Stampin' Up in celebration of their 25th Anniversary. A new Best of 25 Years stamp set will be released each month from June until October (5 in total) and they will be available until March 2014. Each set will have 3 - 5 images and will contain 1 new image with the others being favourites from the last quarter century. The sets are all clear mount and cost £13.95. To see the full set of stamps click here.

The June Best of 25 Years set is called Best of Flowers, and here is my first sample with apologies for the picture quality, I need a lesson in photography!

I stamped a pastel background with Pink Pirouette ink and the hydrangea image from the set. I then stamped the hydrangea again using black Staz-on ink onto a Whisper White card topper, and coloured this with markers. I added colour around the main image by dabbing on some Pink Pirouette ink using one of the large stamping sponges.

Card colours:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Pink Pirouette
Inks:  Pink Pirouette, Black Staz-on
Markers:  Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery

Back soon.
