Hello Everyone ~ My Beautiful Friendship Hydrangea creation was fun to create.
Well I got everything on my to do list completed yesterday. The interior decorator came and we did a little rearranging of my furniture but she liked how I had it. She also helped me get my pictures organized and set up so now I can hang them. I can’t wait to get them up. I do need to get a new rug as one of mine is red and it really does not go with what I have. That could be a real challenge to find one that I like. I did find one on the site she recommended but it was almost $2000 so I am going to keep looking. Hopefully I can find one a little less expensive.
Today I played with the Beautiful Friendship stamp set. I love the hydrangea stamp in the set and decided to play with it. I recently got an artificial plant for my front porch and I loved the colors in it. It had a purple and a blue. I decided to see if I could use the hydrangea stamp to recreate it on my card. I took the stamp and using Pool Party ink I stamped it on the left lower corner of the Whisper White panel. Then I cleaned the stamp and inked it up with Highland Heather. I rotated the stamp and used a second generation stamping on top of the Pool Party to get the 2 tone bloom. The leaves were stamped in Pear Pizzazz and the other flower spray was a second generation of So Saffron. I stamped my sentiment in Highland Heather. This panel was mounted onto a Highland Heather panel and then onto a Pool Party panel. These panels were added to a Whisper White card base. To finish off the card I added some Gingham Gala Adhesive backed sequins. Here is my completed Beautiful Friendship Hydrangea.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you. Bijou has a vet appointment this morning and then we will take the afternoon and do something. We need to see what the weather will be as there is some rain headed out way. We will find something to do. Have a Great Day and do you think my interpretation of the colors for the Beautiful Friendship Hydrangea were close to ones you have seen?
