Hydrangeas and Beautifully Baroque

The new "Best of Flowers" Set features the gorgeous Hydrangea stamp though it is a smaller scale than the original. I have had some fun stamping with it. In this card I coloured directly onto the stamp with Soft Sky ink, than added a few highlights using the Wisteria Wonder Stampin' Write marker, and the Gumball Green marker for the leaves. Once stamped I softened the image with the Blender Pen and added a little more Wisteria colour also using the blender pen. The cardstock layers were cut using the Windows Framelits in Soft Sky and Very Vanilla, then I trimmed them down for a more rectangular shape, the green mat is Gumball Green.
The Base layer is made using the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder which I inked up with the Soft Sky ink pad before running through the Big Shot - I  think this could be a new favourite colour for me! ( this technique is already a fave) The card is finished with Soft Sky Seam binding and one of the new Very Vintage Designer buttons and Some Linen Thread.
I really love the rich texture of the embossing folder with the ink and hope you will give it a try.
