Pretty in pink…and blue

This weeks challenge at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best is Blue and Pink.For full details on how to play and be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop please visit the challenge blog.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT’s beautiful work.

I’ve used the  pretty Hydrangea image from Digi Doodle Shop for my card. Printed onto water colour paper and coloured using Distress Inks.I’ve also used a little Distress Ink applied with Cut ‘n’ Dry Foam on the edges of the image and card base.The Prima Hydrangeas were white but they’ve been dyed with Distress Inks to match.Rather than a brad or gem I decided to use a recent purchase of stamens to fill the middles.Once the wires were trimmed at the back I applied some Pinflair Glue Gel to keep them in place.This also adhered them to the card.
