Orchids

Hello Everyone!!  Today I was playing with a few new things - the Orchids stamp set by Flourishes (how pretty is this!!), the RV90's markers (care of my buddy Nat), purple button (care of my sweet friend Kris) and this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!!  I've been a bit mojoless lately, so I was hoping the playing with new things might spark something!!  :)

I started with the Orchids, stamping them in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and colouring with Copics (RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99 {a little tip-to-tip}, G40, G82, G85, G99, C1, C3, BG0000, BG000, Y13, Y15, W1, 0).  It was cut out with Large Oval Nestabilities and matted with some Vintage Pink Bazzill cut with Beaded Oval Nestabilities.  I followed this week's sketch and constructed my base of vintage pink, white and some Kioshi paper that I found deep in my stash.  Across the bottom I added another piece of Kioshi and matted it with white, punched on one side with a scallop punch.  Around this I attached some white satin ribbon and topped it with a bow, purple button and some silver cord.  Finally I added my orchids image by popping it up on foam tape.
