I love the Hydrangea stamp and decided to try watercolour the delicate petals. Getting definition and shadding was very tricky with each flower being so small but I am so very happy wih the final look and the pop of the yellow in the center of each flower.
I used a new die cut set from M&C Boutique that has 7 lovely leaves. I decided to cut out of a pale blue that had just a hint o green in the tone, turning the leaf cutter into a delicate meadow flower.
As I had paint left I highlighted the rounded ends with yellow paint. I liked curling one above the hydrangea and layering one slightly ontop but leaving a good deal of white space on the card.
All that was left was to stamp a sentiment but I chose to try stamp with my blue watercolours and thankfully the paint was thik enough to work well but be warned that often this technique just creates a blurred blob of colour as watercolours are so liquid.
