Hydrangea Card

Hi all,

At last I get to the computer! Been food shopping this morning - HATE IT! Still, managed to get one Xmas pressie out of the way. . .

This card is going into the Papertake Weekly challenge today. There was an interesting sketch that I wanted to use, so busied myself sketching something to put on it. I came up with this Hydrangea. I based it loosely on a picture I had seen somewhere on the net, and printed off ages ago with the intention of drawing it, and have only just got round to it!!

I have coloured it with my watercolour pencils and layered up with foam pads. I placed the whole thing on a glittery purple card and trimmed the edges with some decorative scissors. In the corners I put some silver peel-offs. Can't remember where I got the backing from though. It's a digital image I have been keeping just to use with this flower, when I got round to drawing it that is!!

I'll be loading this sketch on to my blog shop Delicious Doodles, just as soon as I finish the other project I'm working on. . . !

Hi Teri,
This is beautiful and all the more to be admired because you drew the hydrangea yourself. This is a fantastic take on the sketch. I love it.
