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!

You make it look so easy…but I get out my little set and our cards have nothing in common. I’m trying to make cards with WCC women &children in crisis and they have so much fun and learn to let their walls down as they make cards for the Children Cancer Wing so I will trudge along and pay it forward. The card is fabulous we shall see what supplies my check book can buy..I wish the whole release but learning lots of cool things. Thanks!!
