Floral Punch Craft - Hydrangea

This was made using the Violets & Iris and the Lilacs & Daphne Floral Punch Bunch Theme punches and Penny Black stamps.

I punched out the flowers in 2 contrasting coloured paper and shaped them by pressing into the centres until they were a cupped flower I punched out the leaves in a green paper and scored in the veins and coloured them using fluid chalk inks, I built up the leaves and flowers onto a half Polystyrene half ball until it was fully covered.

Then inked up the flower stamp with Brilliance pearlescent ink in two contasting colours and a leaf shade and stamped directly onto the card.

I used black ink for the sentiment then layered this up.
