*{Pin}aspirational Challenges: Hydrangea Sprite


Today is the start of a new challenge at 

{PIN}spirational Challenges.

Challenge #190 runs for 2 weeks until 22nd May.

Here is the beautiful inspiration photo:

And the sponsors this time are Digital Delights and Oddball Art. 


For my card, I chose to use this gorgeous digital stamp called Hydrangea Sprite (Big Eye) from Aurora Wings:

Hydrangeas have the most beautiful flowers, and I love them when they dry out and take on paler hues, too.

I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir markers, then cut it with a Cottage Cutz Stitched Rectangle die. The image was matted onto black card, then attached on foam pads to the  background paper and onto black card again.

The background is digital paper by Prettygraphixdesign, but it is unique, in that it was supposed to be brown (for a different project), but my printer was running low on ink and it turned out mauve! I thought it was perfect to go with this image.  A spotted lilac ribbon was attached to the background paper, then it was matted onto black card.
The image was attached on foam pads to the base card making an 'over the edge' card.

I made some flowers from white card. They were die cut with the smallest flower die from the Sweet Dixie set. Then they were inked using Memento inks and water and shaped whilst still damp. When the flowers were dry, a green crystal gem was added to the centre of each. Some leaves were die cut and coloured with inks and these were arranged with the flowers and some dried natural flowers from Anna Marie Designs. A small tag sentiment was added to finish it off.

hope you'll pop over to 
to check out the gorgeous designs by the rest of the DT.
