For 'Someone Special'

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for
Just Us Girls
This week it's Photo Week
and our Host is Lisa.

I knew what stamp I wanted to use here and it is
SU Because I Care and I love the main stamp
being a hydrangea. It always has a variety of colours
and going with the Amethyst below was perfect.
(not to mention my favourite colour)

I inked up my watercolour paper with
Lindy's Witches Potion Purple Spray
and added the Magical's in the same colour
as they have this gorgeous shimmer to it.
I then cut out a zillion small flowers
from my MS hydrangea punch.
That done I put them aside to concentrate
 on the rest of my card.
I chose SU Tip Top Taupe for the card base and frame
and also stamped the leaves/stem in the same colour.
This was on cream linen card stock.
Underneath the punched flowers the flower image
was stamped with Memento Sweet Plum as a guide.
I touched up the leaves with a hint of green.
My sentiment is from STAMPlorations Fluttery
This was popped for dimension.
Added a few gemstones, some ribbon
and a bit of Nuvo shimmer.

Pop over and see what our Special Guest Lisa Elton
and the Team created and come join us.
You could be Chic of the Week and
be our guest in April.
Thanks for dropping in

It's been quite some time since I managed to play over at the
January flew by and now February is half way gone too.
So glad I got time to create a little something
suitable for both challenges. Yay!

My hearts have been die cut from
CUTplorations Clustered Hearts.
The base is white card stock and
the pink hearts are inked with
Nuvo Cherry Bomb Shimmer Powder
added to wet acetate then smooched
onto water colour paper.
The red hearts I added gel medium
to the die cuts and added a generous amount of
Nuvo Hollywood Red Sparkle Dust.
I even managed to get a bit of texture to the big one.
which has been cut several times with white card stock
 for dimension then attaching the red sparkly one.
I cut my pink background with a stitched die
popped to my card base which was inked randomly with
tiny hearts from SU Beyond the Basics.
 I then attached my cut out hearts.
The XOXO is from STAMPlorations Pocket Blooms
inked with Tim's Festive Berries
and adding sparkle with a Nuvo Glitter pen.
A tiny pearl to the smallest pink heart finished my card.

A close up showing the dimension.

My Mix is Dimensional Die Cuts, Glitter,
Watercolouring, Stamping.
