Birthday, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Watercolour

Watercolour Orchids

Hello Friends,

Today I share another card using the amazing, Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, and by purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

This card, I did something a bit backwards…. I die cut all the pieces first before colouring or stamping! Yes, I know it sounds a little weird but you will see why in a minute.

I love the softness of the watercolouring of these flowers. I used an Aquapainter to apply ink to each of the petals allowing each colour to dry before adding the next.  The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The centre is a little dark so I added some Wink of Stella to glimmer it up!

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, but I think “hello” can be used for so many occasions, I went with that!

What do you think of this watercolour look? Will you give it a try???

Orchids in Burst

Hello Friends,

It’s less than a week until my sisters birthday, and I know she loves orchids as she has been successfully growing them for many years. When I saw the Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to purchase it! By purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

I’m not sure if I will give this card to her or make some more, but this is my first play and it certainly won’t be my last

I love the softness of the colouring on these flowers. I used a sponge dauber to lightly colour the petals with Powder Pink, then Berry Burst ink before applying some Wink of Stella. The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The top photo is a little dark and the one below, is a little bright, but I was trying to show you the Wink of Stella glimmer on the flowers!

Check out that embossing on the Powder Pink background, isn’t it gorgeous?!! This is the new Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves.

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, so I decorated the inside and added the “enjoy today” sentiment with another small orchid!
