More on the Hydrangea


Since I still had my Hydrangea set and card stock out, I used them for today's sketch on SCS. I changed swapped out the Burgundy for Riding Hood Red in my flower, added a bit of Close to Cocoa to the leaves, and tried my hand at stamping the beautiful vase that come with with set.

I need a bit more practice at getting the vase to fit right with the flower bloom, I'll have to try a few more times before I clean up my studio. I added the Black Sheer Ribbon through the Filigree brad, then heated with my heat gun.
For the Mellow Moss piece, I adhered my Black strip, then ran it through my Big Shot using the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Folder.

I've had a few people ask about the images - you stamp them in stages to create your finished image. For example to create the flower - there are 4 different stamps, and I used 4 different inks. If you didn't have 4 coordinating inks, you could always ink your image, stamp off then stamp. I did this for the vase - as I didn't have 4 shades of Gray.

The flower was stamped as follows:
Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Riding Hood Red

The vase as follows:
Going Grey, Going Grey, Basic Gray, Black

Details:
Stamps - Kitchen Sick Hydrangea
Card Stock - White, Black, Mellow Moss, Rose Red, Regal Rose
Ink - Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Riding Hood Red, Going Grey, Basic Bray, Black
Other - Big Shot, CB Distress Stripes Folder, Black Sheer Ribbon, Filigree Brad, Heat Gun

Love the Hydrangea flower cards Lisa. My favorite flower! Though with this kind of vase if you included some hints of stems it might help it look a bit more natural. My Mom loves these flowers and her's always have a bit of stem visible when they are displayed in this type of vase (actually in almost any kind of vase).

Hugs and blessings - Jean
