I have used the  Flourishes Hydrangea stamp set to create this card - I just love Hydrangeas in the garden and have been itching to ink up this image and colour it.

The image is stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink - Onyx Black and coloured using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Markers.  It has been cut out and popped up onto the Labels Four  Spellbinders™ Nestabilities®, then onto the size 3 Gold Labels Four Spellbinders™ Imperial Gold die templates and size 4  Labels Thirty Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® using foam tape inbetween.  

Remember Spellbinders™ Dies are numbered from the smallest to the largest! 

 The background paper has added the Grateful Lattice Spellbinders™ Expandable Patterns dies
