Painting Hydrangea Florals on EVO Synthetic Paper

It’s graduation season around here and we are sending out bunches of graduation congratulations cards. A handmade card and some cash is a great way to send off graduates into the next chapter of life.

We created this pretty floral card using Copic Markers and our EVO Synthetic paper for a friends daughter.  The Hydrangea background looks complicated but it came together quickly and easily. Here are a few tips that might help you recreate this look.

  1. Choose three coordinating colors of alcohol ink markers. We used COPIC Tender Pink, Raspberry and Viola.
  2. Randomly draw in various sizes of circles using all three markers. Vary the sizes of the circle and the spacing.
  3. Fill a small spray bottle with Isopropyl alcohol. Mist each circle individually from varying distances. Be sure to mask of areas you don’t want to “over” mist.
  4. Let dry and mist certain areas again if needed.
  5. Use the background to create the foundation of your card. This card also features our White and Lilac Glitter cardstock.
  6. Stamp a sentiment and flowers to adorn the background. The stamp set we used is called ‘Type Talk’ from Concord & 9th.
