Hi there!

Today’s card is another one using the Hydrangea stamp from the Because I Care stamp set.  This set is one of the free stamp sets you can get for hosting a workshop/party (whether it be in the home or a catalogue party) or for placing an order of at least $300.  It’s also on the Last Chance List as it will be retiring at the end of August 2011.

This is another design by the very talented Tamara Conroy.  We made this a while ago in our monthly get-together, and I gave it to my mum for Mother’s Day.  I had to ask her if I could borrow it to photograph it as I had forgotten to do so before I gave it to her!  It’s nice to know she keeps the cards I make…

This card uses some basic masking and sponging techniques to add colour.  The swirly vine is from the Vintage Vogue stamp set and the music stamp is not by Stampin Up.
