Hello, Today I am playing along with the Monthly Mix Challenge over at Gina K Designs where my lovely friend Barb is hostess. The challenge is to use an Image, Die-cut, and Sentiment on your project. Such an easy one!
Do you ever take a card just a tiny bit too far and wish you had listened to your gut when it told you to stop? Well, that is how I feel about this card. Everything was going well till I decided to make a mask of the hydrangea stamp and stamp the text in the background. Two things happened that I am not crazy about. First, I should have cut the white piece out of the middle of the flowers because now it looks weird because it has no text, and two, the color ink I chose for my words was just too dark. I wanted something a bit more subtle. But what’s done is done and you have to move on.
Card Details: Hydrangea-Gina K Designs, sentiment is also Gina K, the leaves EF is from ?, the word background is SSS. I used my Copics as my medium and a very small bit of Colored pencil on the leaves. I came back with a white gel pen for the center of the flowers. Sequins and string and I was done.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there! This is not my favorite holiday, so hubby and I are taking our bikes to St. Pete for the day! Should be a great distraction from missing my son!
Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’

Wow, you put a lot of work into this beauty, and you are too critical of your work. This is just lovely and I adore the colors. Hydrangeas are a favorite of mine and this card is too. Thanks for joining in the challenge.
