Hot Cocoa Hydrangea.....



So the other day I was at Home Depot looking in their garden centre and found THEE most beautiful roses - they almost looked artificial they were so gorgeous!!! They were called Hot Cocoa. So I picked a couple of them up and made room for them in my back yard.
As I was sitting, admiring them, it got me thinking......
I love this color combo of Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, and Pear Pizzaz!!!
I luv hydrangeas and so when I got this stamp set, Because I Care, in my pre order, I was thrilled. This will be a Level 1 Hostess Set as well!!! It comes with a couple saying, "Because I Care" and "Thank You" (pictured below) as well as a single petal hydrangea (which is what I have stamped in the background to jazz it up a little) a ornate row of flowers stamp, and finally, the super duper yummy Hydrangea! I stamped mine in Cherry Cobbler on the flower part, Early Espresso on the stem, and Pear Pizzaz on the leaves, with some blending of Cherry Cobbler into the leaves for a realistic look. I then colored in the flower with Riding Hood Red and accented some areas with Cherry Cobbler. To finish it, I just used my white gel pen and dotted it up a little. NJOY!!!
