Meet Hydrangea...

Happy Wednesday and welcome to Flourishes May new release. As always Flourishes has a beautiful design of stamps that will make you drool. Today we are showing you the new set called Hydrangea. My oh my does it get any better than this? My creation is using the large flower in the set. After my image was colored and dried I cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. I set that aside so that I could work on the frame. Spellbinders Floral Ovals die is beautiful and would make for an elegant frame so I cut one out. Then I took Spellbinders Classic Ovals and cut out the center so I have a frame, add a few dimensionals to the back. Insert my Hydrangea that I cut out, add my sentiment and a ribbon bow. Voila! I love how this turned out. All that white space and framing really brings out the flowers don't you think?

This is lovely. The white on white background gives great subtle texture but allowing the wonderfully colored hydrangea to take center stage. Wonderful!
