Vintage Hydrangea

I have one more card to share with you from the recent Dare to Get Dirty challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  This card was also a combination of inspiration and sketch challenges.

Here is the inspiration photo.  Can you tell what elements I was using in the photo?

I attempted the faux barn board technique, using white acrylic paint mixed with Summer Starfruit ink, but it didn't crack for me. :( That technique can be tricky, but I wasn't going to waste a perfectly good piece of card stock.  It still led to an interesting background texture.

Stamps: Because I Care; Paper: Summer Starfruit, Garden Green, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Garden Green DSP, Patio Party DSP, Newprint DSP; Ink: Summer Starfruit, Black Stazon, Summer Starfruit reinker, Garden Green marker; Accessories: Linen Thread, Silver mini brads, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Square Lattice EF, Big Shot, Dimensionals, White acrylic paint.

Thanks for stopping by!
