Hydrangea Blooms

Challenge 109
June Is Bursting Out All Over

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

Ike, you are a superstar, thank you so much for drawing this wonderful digi for me to work with for this challenge :) :) :)

For the background (I meant to do music but got carried away with the flowers hahahaha) I used a leaf stencil and Distress Oxides, blitzed with some water and left to dry. Using Photoshop I placed the Hydrangea bloom three times, resizing and rotating each time.  Once I was happy with the layout I printed the image on to the background paper.  The flowers were coloured with Prismacolour pencils and the centre of each finished of with Liquid Pearls. The butterflies were cut using acetate and coloured with Promarkers, I love the translucent look this gives.  To complete the card I added a simple sentiment and then decorated the inside of the card with my leaf stencil and Distress Oxides again.
