MMTPT166, Get Well Hydrangea!

Hi All, I made this card for this weeks Teapot Tuesday challenge MMTPT166! This weeks Destination Station is to Sharon, who has had multiple surgeries on her foot that has been very problematic, and she needs some cheering up!

I also used the MOJO Monday sketch MOJO209!

Since Sharon loves hydrangeas, I decided to try and make one! This stamp is called Fat Mice Flower from Totally Stampalicious. I masked off the flower (which was a daisy) stamped the image, and coloured with copics.

The 3D hydrangea was easy, just fiddly! I punched 3 circles from wisteria wonder, 1-1/8", 3/4" & 1/2". Attach the 3/4" circle to the larger circle with dimensionals, and the the 1/2" circle on top of that with dimensionals. Then I punched 26 of the small flowers with the MS hydrangea punch. I added a drop of liquid pearls to the center, sponged the edges...very fiddly...and then shaped them so the petals curved up. I used liquid tombo glue to apply them, starting at the top and working my way down. It also helped to have my paper piercer handy or anything with a pointy end to help press them into place.

Paper: concord crush, wisteria wonder, white, certainly celery, dp cheerful treat
