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!

Wow-beautiful! Thanks Sandy for sharing with us!
Dear Sandy, To say your work inspires me is an understatement! I began following you just when I began teaching myself how to make homemade cards 2 years ago-and watched your You-Tube videos so closely-trying to teach myself how to utilize Copics, then I added watercolors-oh my what fun! I love making cards to cheer up “homebound” and those in the hospital. They are so grateful- its wonderful to bring a little “handmade” joy to them, and let them know -they are cared for. Thank you for daily inspiring me with your amazing gifts! Your videos encourage me-and undoubtedly encourage countless others! Thank you for missing sleep to help us learn! God bless you, Julieanne.
Oh Sandy, your work is just beautiful!! Gorgeous card–and I love hydrangeas!
