Beautiful Hydrangea.... take 2

I was hoping to get to posting this card on Saturday, but I was super busy this weekend with classes. I always love teaching classes, but when I do them it is tiring. The best part is always when someone creates a card using a new technique that they figure they can not master and it turns out wonderfully.... the look on their face is totally worth it.

I also had a blast doggy sitting. We took the dogs out to the off leash area and let them run wild. Meika found a slough and went head first into it, and came out soaking wet. Gross!! Needless to say she ended up getting a bath when we got home.

Here is take 2 of the Hydrangea card. I think you all will get sick of me posting cards from this set. I have already made 2 more cards in totally different styles with it, and I plan on doing many many more. This one is different from the first by changing the card base to Concrod Crush, and using Marina Mist as the background. I also added another mat in Marina Mist to the stamped image, and added rhinestones as well as the En Francais in the background.

Stamps: Because I Care, En Francais
Inks: Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Concord Crush
Paper: Marina Mist, Concord Crush, Watercolor Paper
Misc: Aqua Pen, Rhinestone Brads, Sponge Daubers, Stampin' Dimensionals

I hope you like take 2 and I should have take 3 up in a day or two. I have my last classes tomorrow night, and then plans to take the kid to the local amusement park on Tuesday, so sometime in there I will try and get it done and up.

Dany -

It's great to hear from you! Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. As a military spouse, I double as a professional mover ;-) We had everything in it's place night of the move & photos up in the next few days! I've got to have the house homey to feel like home, we move so much! I just love this card, it's gorgeous!

Another beautiful card -- the Rhinestone brads are the perfect finishing touch - I've got to get down to the basement and make some of these beautiful cards.

Definitely not tired of these cards, this is a wonderful set to watercolor, too bad I stink at watercoloring. Your watercoloring is great by the way.

Thanks for sharing

Don't you just love Concord Crush with this stamp? The background and rhinestones really make the card!
