Happy Birthday Hydrangea with Vanessa

If you’re dreaming of spring, then why not at least let it begin in your craft room right now! Today’s inspiration with Simplicity Sister, Vanessa Menhorn, will have you ready to start some “gardening.”

By stamping our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-469 Hydrangea, in light blue and light green ink and splattering a bit of blue watercolor, Vanessa has achieved the look of no line watercoloring while coloring her image with Copic markers.

Tip: don’t be afraid to modify a die-cut to make it work for your project. On this card, Jean trimmed off the snowflake of the 51-082 Snow Wishes sentiment so that the snowflake on the cup, from the 51-281 What’s in Your Cup? set, wouldn’t be too crowded. She used a small heart, cut with 51-100 Tree of Love, to dot the “i” in the sentiment.
