Hydrangeas

I've seen a couple of these hydrangeas recently and decided I had to have a go at one.  Thankfully, I found a video which the very talented Valita Reynolds (a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator) placed on You Tube.  

The flowers are made with the large heart punch.  I love the fact that you can use your punches to make all sorts of different things besides punching the obvious shape of the punch. 

This is my take on the hydrangea and the card I made for it.  What do you think?

Here is a close up shot of the hydrangea.  I placed white brads in the centre of my flowers, but you can also place a circle of coloured card stock in the centre of each flower, as shown in Valita's video.  

I also did my leaves a little different.  I ran the paper piercer down the centre of each Old Olive heart and scratched veins into the card stock with the piercer.  I then sponged Old Olive ink onto the leaves.  I was happy with the end result.
