A Flower of a Different Color...
But seriously... have you LOOKED at hydrangeas??? Do you realize how MANY DIFFERENT colors they come in??? I decided to see what I would come up with if I just did a search for them on Google. Maybe it would show more of one color than another and well... sure... THAT would be what I'd use. Oy vey!!! Even Google can't decide!! LOL So I decided to go with the ones that I see most often and that, my friends, is why I decided on two colors. Oh ya... and that simple thing called.. "what Tina loves!"... PURPLE!! LOL
My card base is Pure Luxury Vibrant Violet. I added some Fresh Asparagus for a bit of contrast and then layered it up with more Violet and some of that fabulous Gina K Patterned Paper Pack, "Parisian Garden"... love these papers!!! My image is stamped on white and I cut it out before applying it with Pop Dots. I added a paper doily for a little more dimension and some Prima Pearls to the mix before adding my ribbon and bow treatment.
I REALLY enjoyed coloring this bunch of flowers but I must say now I have the urge to do even more of them in ALL the colors that hydrangeas grow in. They remind me of lilac bushes. Oy... yet another flower I can smear with purples.. hee!
I hope you are having a great Saturday and that your weekend is a relaxing one... Lord knows I sure need it!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! *HUGS*
