Simply hydrangeas

This hydrangea image, part of a Level 1 hostess set from the new Stampin’ Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog, is stunning.  Are you intimidated by the idea of coloring this?  This approach, above, is nothing more than several squares punched from various parts of a larger image.  The fact that it is monotone makes it so striking.  I was inspired by the beautiful work of SU! demonstrator Jo-Ann Pullen and the stunning new Early Espresso core color, a very rich black-brown.
