After not posting anything in a month, the last few days, I have had energy to craft a few cards. Been stuck at home recuperating. Turned to YouTube and learned this color lifting technique from Jennifer McGuire. After following her technique, I fussy cut the flower and leaves and added sparkle to the hydrangea and leaves with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle brush pen. Stacked 3 layers of the "thanks" die cut for added dimension. I love how it turned out. I sent it to my dear friend Verna at Fuji Floral Design in midtown Atlanta. She loves working with hydrangeas and other beautiful "not your ordinary" flowers including orchids and other tropicals to create stunning arrangements. She has been sending me food and flowers during my recovery.
For how to do this technique, please go to Jennifer McGuire's blog.
