Hydrangea - Colouring on Kraft

Hello, everyone!  I have been colouring on kraft again!  No kitties today!  Back in May, I won this gorgeous clear stamp from Kennedy Grace Creations called Beautiful Bloom - Hydrangea (thank you, Michelle!).  I stamped it with Memento Grape Jelly and Bamboo Leaves inks and then coloured it with Prismacolor pencils. For something different, I outlined it with white pencil and then added tiny gems to the centre of the blooms.


I wanted some ink splatters but I was afraid to mess up my colouring so I used just the edge of a Mini Splatter stamp from Your Next Stamp, inked with Hero Arts Unicorn - I like how it turned out!  I added some sequins from Kennedy Grace Creations - the purple and green from Lilac Garden and the clear from Isabella's Dream.

The die-cut butterfly is Poppystamps Devyn Butterfly Trio. I left the die-cut intact and added some tiny sequins from my stash to the butterfly's body.

Here are the other items used:
  • Sentiment stamp:  Simon Says Stamp Thanks, stamped in Memento Gape Jelly
  • Cardstock:  Neenah Desert Storm
  • Glitter cardstock: Colorbok
  • Twine:  Dollarama

How beautiful. I love the little purple accents they really highlight the hydrangea perfectly. Stamping on the Kraft paper gives it a lot of "pop". Love it!!

It's a beautiful look, and great pencil coloring. It looks very pretty on the pale kraft, and I love your idea to outline in the white. I'm the same with spatters (which is why you don't see me do it often!) but your way of adding the spatters worked great. Beautiful floral. TFS & Hugs
