Friendship Hydrangeas

Hello My Crafty Friends!

Hope that everyone is enjoying their summer at least to the best of your abilities during these trying times.

Today I have a card I for a friend that has just had hip surgery so will be going to visit her soon.  I (re)created using a technique called Black Magic for background and an arrangement that Susan did a couple of weeks ago.

Card is a 6" X 6" created from white Soft Finish Cardstock 110#

6" X 6" Black cardstock using Distress Oxide Inks (I used 3 color Sprays) create background.  Tear around the edges and use Distress Ink to ink edges (Antique Linen used here).  Video for Black Magic backgrounds can be found at end of video found here 

Hydrangeas were something I had already created so not sure what colors or techniques that I used.  A couple of ferns were laid down first (but they really don't show so not needed) added my hydrangeas and leaves using Kids Choice Glue.  Placed them so that there would be room for sentiment.

Stamped sentiment in black ink on white cardstock tore edges then inked with the Distress Ink Antique Linen used dimensional dots to adhere to card front.

Hope this is an inspiration for you and you will go play!

Thanks for stopping by and until next time - Happy crafting!

Remember Susan Tierney-Cockburn's new release with Spellbinders is just a month away - you will love it!  I am so proud that she selected me to be on her Design Team I started on her team with Elizabeth Craft Designs.


You only live once if you live right once is enough!
