Happy Birthday Hydrangea

I just don't have catchy post titles.  I guess my imagination doesn't quite extend that far!  Anyway, here's another card we made in Texas. This one (and the next post) showcases the new set called Bloom Burst.  It is gorgeous!

We played with 5 of our Liquid Colors on this card. We used our Blending Brushes and added a few drops of color to the 3/4 full of water brush for each color.

Card stocks: Butter Cream, Cool Pool, & Color Splash Watercolor Paper
Inks: Black Licorice & River Stone (used for the flowers)
Liquid Colors: Cool Pool, Lovely Blue, Bubble Gum,  & Watermelon Fusion,
Silks: Cool Pool
Accessories: Photo Pin Elements, Journey Thread Silver, Sparkle Drops, Blue Skies Sequins, & Cool Pool Parade Journey Tape
Dies: Hexagon
Tools: Details Pro Shears, Media Mister, Blending Brush Medium, Paper Trimmer (we trimmed the watercolor paper before adhering to the card base)
Adhesives: White Liner Tape & Foam Squares

After we stamped the flowers with the River Stone ink we misted the watercolor paper well and started "painting" with the color filled blending brushes.  Toward the end we flicked the Cool Pool Silk for the puddles.  I think my paper was a bit too dry to get the effect we were shown,

This card turned out much prettier than I thought it would.  It will require being either hand delivered or put in a bubble envelope as the embellishments stick up a lot!
