Hydrangea Horse Card/Hortensia och en häst
I've always been a huge fan of the Hydrangea bush we had in my parents' garden. I used to take in the flowers, dry them and keep them for a year, until I could get new ones. I was thinking how I could make my EK success punches to make hydrangeas, instead of the usual apple blossom style flowers, and this is what I came up with. I think I got the pink, the white and the brownish hues rather similar to the real ones. I used mists and tattered rose reinker, and yes, the flowers are made of coffee filters (white and unbleached). I added some beads and small plastic half domes to resemble dew...
The background is made with PTI's woodgrain impression plate. First I sprayed some Glimmer mists on the teal cardstock, ran it through my Cuttlebug, and later when it was dry enough, I sponged it with Fresh Snow ink from PTI.
