Snowy Hydrangia

What to blather on about tonight? Family weekend going on now at the college. It is fun to chat with parents who are making their 3rd or 4th annual trek and just as fun to meet with the ‘new’ parents who have returned to campus to hug and check up on their young freshmen students. Football game, volleyball game, cross country invitational, dinner, mystery theatre, mass, brunch…we pack a lot into family weekend!
Our first snow fell over night. Lovely, white, downy soft, snow…. Not enough to have to break out the shovels thank goodness. Most of it is gone now but the forecast is for more of the same.
Sister Gailey hit a sale at JoAnn's and bought me some brads!!! Yipeeeee...I'm officially looking forward to the next ToC! Ain't sista's great?

I did squeeze in a little ‘bubble’ time this morning. I colored in the image this week and did the assembly this morning. Here are the details.
~Base card is PaperTrey – top and sides smudged up with two shades of Stampin- Up! blues
~Next is a layer of DaisyD’s snowflake blue – I used a corner curve on one corner and stamped two background stamps using Weathered by Stampin’ Up! and Stampablities Le London Script
~Square layer of metallic green smudge with Stampin’Up! Old Olive and edges rounded with punch
~Rectangle layer of Stempin’Up! Eggplant cardstock stamped with Stampabilities Le London Script
~The image is digital and colored in using Copics and topped off with spots of Stampin’Up! Crystal Effects, the leaves are varnished with a matte watercolor coating. I trimmed around the hydrangea then used a made ‘shadow layers’ of cardstock in three colors. I don’t know if this ‘technique’ really has an official name – but it reminds me of the type of quilting called shadow quilting when a design is repeated concentrically. The image was attached using dimensionals.
~The final touch – an assortment of sheer ribbons

All good wishes,
