Orchids and a Thank You


So happy y'all dropped by my blogging world! I do love sitting down begin my coloring flowers. These orchids fit right in.

I finished this Thank You card back in July and today I found some time to write about my process. This clear stamp is part of a Gina K Designs set designed by Theresa Momber entitled “Elegant Florals 2.” I am in love with Theresa's designs and also Melanie Muenchinger's art work. Gina has a crew of very talented artists and designers. To watch most of the videos, head over to StampTV and join in the fun. Click on Melanie’s and Theresa’s name above and you will be taken to their YouTube channels. You can also join us at our Facebook group “Gina K Designs’ Fan Club.”


I first stamped the orchid images twice with Memento ink on Copic X-Press Blending cardstock. This cardstock is my favorite when it comes to coloring with Copics. After the coloring and trimming was complete, I added Liquid pearls to the center of each orchid. I then used several layers of a pumpkin color cardstock and ivory cardstock.


Copic colors used are:
Orchids: RV63, 69 + YR20, 23, 24;
Branches: G20, 82, 85;
Background: B000, 00, +BG10, +G20, 93.

“Thank You So Much” will be entered in the following challenges:
Lemon Shortbread Challenge – Anything Goes
Aurora Wings Challenge – Black, orange, and one other color (I hope this makes it.)
Craft You Passion – Anything Goes
StampTV - Inspiration Photo
