Hydrangea Splatter Hello Card – Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challenge

By Taheerah | 18th October 2016 | 4 Comments

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

The latest Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challenge was one I just couldn’t resist – after all it combined two of my most favourite companies! The challenge was to combine Essentials by Ellen and Pinkfresh Studio products, and I couldn’t wait to get started! I actually made a trio of cards, but decided to tease them out over a few days. *wink*. The first was showcased on Sunday here, I had another card up yesterday here, and today I’m back with my final creation!

So, let’s jump straight into today’s card! I wanted to incorporate more stamping this time! I went back to the Essentials by Ellen ‘Mondo Hydrangea’ stamp set again – I have to confess that I love this set, but I do wish that it would rain money from the sky or something so that I could expand my collection of Ellen goodies! There’s so many that I want!

I think this combination of stamps and patterned paper was the perfect marriage!

Once again I can’t praise the designs from the Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills Collection enough! The watercolour splatter design on this paper meant I already had a great background to play with!

I peppered the patterned paper with the two small bloom stamps from Mondo Hydrangea, using a navy ink to match the colours of the Indigo Hills collection. I then selected some Copic markers that matched the other colours in the collection and coloured over a selection of the blooms to create a sort of watercolour wash look!

The ‘Hello’ sentiment is from the Mondo Magnolia stamp set. I overstamped this a few times (thank you, Mini MISTI!) and then fussy cut it out. I adhered it with dimensional glue gel so that it really pops off the card. Love that little detail!

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my entries for this challenge – it’s been nice to create just for fun for a change! Do please rush over and look at adding the Indigo Hills Collection to your stash – you won’t be disappointed!

And PS: Ellen Hutson has an *amazing* new Winter release out today!! I can’t wait ’til I can get some of it, but in the meantime if you want to grab stuff before it sells out you can check it all out here!

  1. Wow Taheerah! You’ve blown my mind with (all) your amazing entries… super inspired and inspirational! I was wondering with which paper have you made the last card, then I read the word Copics… ok, all explained :).

    1. Thank you!! 🙂 I did still use one of the patterned papers from the Indigo Hills line – but a few of the blooms had Copics over them to give them a splash of colour! 🙂 I really love how that turned out – it’s even better in real life! 😀
