I've had this hydrangea stamp for many years - it is made by Stampa Rosa (are they still around?) and the date on it is 2000. It's one I come back to over and over again. Hydrangeas remind me of my childhood - there was a big hydrangea bush in our garden, and although people work hard to get them to flower in either pink or blue, ours was left to its own devices and the flowers were always mauve. So I've coloured it mauve in honour of that one!
It is stamped and heat embossed on watercolour paper then coloured in with watercolour pencils. The punched edges used a Martha Stewart punch and the background is a textured card from Bazzill. I added a little ribbon because I thought it needed a bit of something more, but I fear it looks as if I'm trying to cover up a blooper, which for once I'm not!
