IO Flowers Challenge


Impression Obsession is having a Flowers Challenge!  Check it out and play along for a prize! 
I made this hydrangea card with an IO die and I just love the way it turned out. It looks a bit washed out in the picture.  I used K & Company's Flora & Fauna paper for my background. I used a Viva pen to put the tiny dots of green in the flowers.  The leaves needed a little highlighting so I rubbed some Chestnut Roan ink on them.

I finished it off with a matted Stampers Anonymous sentiment.  
Finished size is 6 1/4 x 4 3/4.
  • Stamps: Stampers Anonymous - Simple Sayings CMS155
  • Ink: Versafine - Vintage Sepia, Color Box - Chestnut Roan cat's eye
  • Paper: K & Company - Flora & Fauna 6 x 4, SU! Early Espresso
  • Die: Impression Obsession - Hydrangea Set DIE044-Y
  • Other: Spellbinders - Classic Rectangle die, Viva Paper Pen - Moss Green

Good golly Miss Molly! You did an outstanding job with this flower. The small pic on the IO site does not do justice. So glad I came over to take a closer look.
