Hydrangea Birthday

Hi there~

I am taking a bit of license in making my Hydrangea more purple than blue, I love purple and green together and at Color Throwdown the colors this week are Purple, Green, Gray, and white.  The sketch at Freshly Made sketches gave me a jumping off point.  I am also adding this to Winnie & Walters 4th Birthday Bash - Watercolor with a twist.  I am adding shading with pencils.

I have a slew of birthday cards to make and flowers will adorn most of the feminine ones.  Instead of black ink I used versafine smokey gray to stamp the image and sentiment.



Thanks so much for stopping by.

  6. This is so pretty! It gives it such a different look to stamp with the grey ink instead of black. Fab take on the sketch.
