The stamp is from Rubber Stampede (I told you it was an old stamp). I stamped it onto watercolor paper with antique linen distress ink, for no-line watercoloring. To paint the hydrangea, I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints. I had put off buying these paints for a long time, and I'm here to tell you that they were certainly worth the wait. They are creamy, smooth, and rich. It is a joy to paint with them.
Here is a close-up of the sparkly Sending die.....
For the background, I used my Clarity brushes and brushed a soft background with my TH distress ink squeezed lemonade. Then I dabbed water droplets on it and used a towel to pick up the ink where the drops were. This created that mottled look and a textured feel to the background. I layered the panel onto a purple card.
The Sending die is from Simon Says Stamp, as are the words 'you love & hugs' (from their Sending & Wishing set). I cut two of them from yellow card stock, and the top one from yellow glitter card stock, and stacked them together for dimension.
Some amethyst Swarovski crystals finish the card.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
