Botanic Orchid Birthday Wishes...

Hi There!
So glad you could pop in for a visit!

It's Wednesday which means I have another project for you from the newest collection by Heartfelt Creations...The Botanic Orchid Collection.

For this week I chose to use the hummingbird stamp which has many different hummers on it which can be cut out with the coordinating die.  I chose to create a background with them rather than die cut them for this card because when stamped as they are, they totally reminded me of the adult coloring books that are so popular right now!  

Here's how it turned out...


I colored the background as well as the images on the sentiment stamp using my Spectrum Noir Blending Pencils along with a gamasol solution and blending stumps. 
I've matted the handstamped background onto a piece of teal colored cardstock from the paper collection and cut out the delicate die cut for the sentiment from the same paper.  The sentiment has been adhered flat to the die cut and then popped up off of the background.  The orchids have been created using vellum paper and have been colored with Memento Rhubarb ink.  A touch of glitter and the card was complete.

Here's a closer look at one of the super simple to create vellum flowers...


This is truly a simple card to create, and will also give you a fix if you've been itching to do some of that "adult coloring"!  

There are amazing samples and ideas up on the Heartfelt Creations blog again today!
Do be sure to pop on over there for a visit!

Until next time...
