MixedMediaMonthlyChallenge:  #22 – Photo Inspiration (Pastel colors of my Hydrangea)MMMC#22.jpg

Card Details:   I colored the background with Color Burst by Ken Oliver:  Violet, Ultramarine Blue and tiny spot of Yellow Ochre.  I stamped the Mondo Hydrangea with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP then cut it out with the Mondo Hydrangeo die by Ellen Hutson. This hole is for my Shaker window. So now I have another Hydrangea for another card. For the green, yellow and orange Hydrangea I stamped on another watercolor paper and used Ultramarine Blue, Yellow Ochre (these combine to make green for the leaf) and Orange to color.  I used fun foam to create depth for the shaker sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I love how the clear sequins pick up the colors surrounding them.  I Cut out the Happy Birthday with Spellbinders Happy Birthday Garland that was colored with spattered watercolors.
