I am delighted that I got my hands on Mondo Hydrangeas….because I was itching to watercolor some big flowers with my Daniel Smith tube paints…and this was the perfect excuse!

The bigger the blooms, the better, right? Especially when working with watercolor – if you’re new to it, bigger blooms have more area for you to get used to pushing around the paint. If you’re new, don’t try that solid background though – yeesh, I was worried for a while that I might have to scrap it and start over!


For the sentiment, I used the Totally Fabulous die set (no longer available) – I cut the totally from vellum and made it along a banner, and attached the fabulous – I put some Be Creative tape on the back before diecutting, which made it nice and sticky to attach to my card!
