The thoughtful branches bundle (limited edition August 2016 product) certainly makes a stunning hydrangea doesn't it?
I've blended shimmery white cardstock with wisteria wonder and marina mist ink to create my hydrangea flowers and die cut it twice (mounting one piece upside down for added texture). I've also clear embossed the petals on the hydrangea but it was awfully hard to see in the photos.
Crumpled brown packaging paper (that came with my Stampin' Up! order) created a beautiful textured background when adhered onto cardstock, don't you think?
