More on Hydrangea Die

Hello friends!

What a sight it is when you see multiple petals in on place!
I am popping in with another post about hydrangea die (Simon Says Stamp) .
I had made a few projects in the late summer and today's post is my 2nd take on it. You can see my previous version here. 

I am glad that I took a photo of my creative process.

In this picture, you can plainly see how I create those delicate hydrangea petals. I used the thickest watercolor paper on hand and left the petals in place. This is the easiest way to color them. I have very limited Zig Clean Watercolor Markers (24) . However, the gradient you can create with them is astounding.

I love stamping with MISTI for the multi-colored sentiment.

Card #2
This card speaks volumes with all the gorgeous colors of hydrangea petals, don't you think?
I hope this post gives you some idea on using dies like Hydrangea Petals.  These petals are perfect on a gift bag, scrapbook page....there is so much you can do with this die.

Just received my Hydrangea blossom've given me more that enough inspiration to use it. Probably not as well as you have, but I'm looking forward to playing with it.

Wow - so much hydrangea goodness, Virginia! Just love all the cards but my fave is the one with the large dots and the layered purple flowers - so fab!!

I've just received my hydrangea petals set, going to use them this weekend, and thank you so much for the GREAT ideas to begin with! And the tip about leaving them on the card stock while coloring! I was thinking that would be a bit tricky! Thanks for all your beautiful work!
