Hydrangeas and Dogwoods

Today's post is a combination of two challenges, inspiration from Jacqueline, and some scraps that have been in my inked backgrounds.  Jacqueline and her beautiful creations is the inspiration for my cards today.   Embellish Magazine Color Trends Challenge is to use music and a set of colors and Hero Arts monthly challenge includes using layering of your stamps.



Here is the inspiration photo from Embellish Magazine with the colors: 
The stamps are from Hero Arts and Inkadinkado. The backgrounds were pieces I had created awhile ago for other projects and leftover. They are inked from dye inks and water. 

I will be back tonight to post up my CR84FN card later! Have a wonderful day!

  1. These are beautiful cards, and what lovely colours. I have an ideas book, and this combination is going in there for future use. I note down colour combos that I like, and when I'm in a dry spell, look through for inspiration. I love the music backgrounds with your lovely flowers too, Judith xx

  15. What a gorgeous colour combination Sue and as always your interpretation has produced two stunning cards. I think the second one just pips it as my favourite because I love those Dogwood flowers. I love the way you've done the backgrounds on this one too.
