For my card I chose the large cluster of blooms and stamped it on water color paper.  It was painted with re-inkers and a paint brush.  I also shaded all around the image with a lovely soft turquoise but I couldn’t seem to get it to translate in the photo.

I used paper from the Basic Grey Wisteria pad and the Lacey Circles die from Spellbinders.   I also used the border die from the Parisian Accents set at the bottom.  The trims are May Arts Silk ribbon in lavender and May Arts Crocheted Lace finished with a button and some twine.  The hydrangea blooms are from Prima…those big tins that were so very popular a few years ago…I have 4 of them!
