Essentials by Ellen July Pin-Sights Challenge

Today, I have a card to share for the Essentials by Ellen July Pin-Sights Challenge:

Isn't it fun?

I used my Essentials by Ellen Mondo Hydrangea stamp set to make my card.
I was inspired by the blue paper lantern and the black and white stripes in the photo.

I started by stamping my hydrangea stamp twice onto watercolour paper
-- once in Memento blue and a second time in versamark (I used my MISTI)
and then I heat embossed it in clear.
I used my Zig Markers and a water brush to colour them ink.

I trimmed out part of the hydrangea by hand and the rest with my trimmer
and layered it over a piece of Crate Paper patterned paper.
I stamped the sentiment (from Papertrey Ink's Songbirds) in versafine
onyx black twice (again using my much-loved MISTI.) 

Thanks for looking!

Really pretty! Loving the blue and the graphic black and white, and love how you trimmed around some of the image and overlapped onto the stripes!
