Because I Care Hydrangea Quick Card

I actually put my "Because I Care" set together. Ok, only the images I used here but it's almost all together!!! I just love this hydrangea. I was amazed at how quick it was to make this card. Including the sponging and the Dotted Swiss embossed background.

To ink up this flower I just took my Bashful Blue ink pad and got as close to the stem as I could. I did get a little ink on the stem and on part of the leaf. I just took my blender pen and wiped it off. Then I took the Wild Wasabi ink pad and inked up the stem. I got very close to the flower but didn't touch it. I then huffed on the image and stamped it. Simple as that. I'm not a big fan of coloring directly on the rubber with markers. Especially on images such as this. The texture of the image wears on my marker. NOT fun! I don't like replacing markers before their time!

This is a very versatile stamp set too. It would work well for birthdays, thinking of you, sympathy and friendship cards. I'm going to have to make some more of these cards, they just went together SO quickly!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
