Sweet Hydrangea

Today I CASE'd a card from Jenna Barber.  I absolutely loved her card that was posted on Splitcoaststampers and had to try it.  I changed the colors slightly, and did a little less layering, but used the same layout and main stamp image.

"Sweet Hydrangea"
Stamps:  Because I Care, Baroque Motifs, Vintage Labels (sentiment) (SU!)
Paper:  Night of Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  Night of Navy, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Marina Mist, Versamark (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Clear embossing powder, white embossing powder, heat tool, Aqua Painter, Flourish Texturz Embossing Plate, Kiwi Kiss 3/8" satin ribbon, small oval punch, medium oval punch

I stamped the hydrangea (Night of Navy ink) and leaves (Old Olive ink) onto the 2" x 3" piece of Whisper White.  I clear embossed them and then water-colored them using Marina Mist and Kiwi Kiss ink along with the Aqua Painter.  I cut them out and set them aside.

I ran the large piece of Night of Navy cardstock and the 2" square piece of Kiwi Kiss cardstock through the Big Shot with the Flourish Texturz plate.  I inked the Baroque Motifs large stamp with Night of Navy ink and stamped it onto the 4" x 1 1/2" piece of Night of Navy cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then layered the cardstock as shown in the picture, making sure to add the ribbon before adhering the front card panel to the card base.  I popped up the square layers of cardstock with dimensionals.
