Hydrangea Cluster

Hello Whimsy Friends! Iris here today with a card made using one of the new Whimsy Rubber stamps from the DoveArt line. This is one of my absolute favorites from the new line. It's called Hydrangea Cluster.

I stamped the Hydrangeas a few times onto Canson heavy weight (140lbs) watercolor cardstock with Distress Ink Antique Linen and colored using Daniel Smith watercolors. (see a list of colors used below). After the watercolors had dried thoroughly I fuzzy cut the Hydrangea flowers. The sentiment is from the Happy Headlines clear set by Deb Davis and was stamped using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink and cut out afterwards. For the background I sponged Fossilized Amber Distress Ink all over the watercolor cardstock I used for the background. I spritzed it with water for some more interest and let it dry. Then I used the Brick Pattern Stencil and Fossilized Amber Oxide ink to sponge the pattern. Using the same color Oxide ink with the stencil as the background gives it a more saturated look and makes it stand out more as the Oxide ink is more opaque. After the ink was dry I applied Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel to add some structure. This gel goes on white and dries crystal clear for an awesome glass like 3D effect.

Here is a closeup on the Hydrangeas. I also added a few crystal dew drops. Kind of hard to see in the photo but looks really nice in real life.

Daniel Smith water colors used:

Sap Green
Undersea Green
