Non-traditional grad card

I needed one more grad card, and this is what I came up with. It's definitely not traditional! I started with some Presto Patterns DSP, which I sponged with Marina Mist and Elegant Eggplant. TIP: Be sure to lightly wipe the DSP with a paper towel to remove the excess ink from the glossy pattern so it pops.
I had seen a beautifully colored hydrangea on Kerin Sylvester's blog that inspired mine. I stamped the image with black StazOn onto Confetti White cardstock. Then I colored the leaves with an aquapainter with Certainly Celery and Old Olive and the flowers with Marina Mist and Elegant Eggplant. I added white gel pen to the flower centers.
I stamped the sentiment with Basic Gray ink, added a Marina Mist flower, and punched it out with the small oval punch. A few dots of Mono Multi adhesive adhered it to the hardware. Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon keeps the hardware in place.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Because I Care, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Confetti White, Basic Gray, Presto Patterns DSP; Ink: black StazOn, Marina Mist, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Gray; Accessories: aquapainter, white gel pen, sponge, small oval punch, horizontal slot punch, Styled Silver hodgepodge hardware, Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon
Happy stamping!
