Coffee and Cream Hydrangea

Every time I’ve looked at the examples of botanicals at the Fanatical About Botanical Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, I’ve been drawn to all the gorgeous fabrics. So I thought I’d have a rummage through my stash of upholstery fabrics to see if I could use any of them on a card. I had decided on coffee and cream colours and found a couple of fabric pieces that I could use.

Coffee and Cream Hydrangea
Stamps (Hero Arts) – Hydrangea, Old Letter Writing and Every Day Sayings

I stamped the Hydrangea on a piece of frayed fabric, added liquid pearls to the flower centres and once dry added some diamond stickles (unfortunately, I can't seem to catch the sparkle in a photo). The sentiment was stamped on cream card with walnut stain distress ink and some antique linen distress ink was applied around the edges of the tag. I stamped the punched butterfly with the Old Letter Writing using antique linen distress ink and made a little bow from some Hero Arts lace.
