Botanic Orchid Thinking of You...

Hello!  Welcome!
It's another Wednesday already!  Where is the time going?
My kids will be finished with school shortly, and I know already I will blink and the summer will have disappeared!  Time really does seem to be passing by more quickly lately!

This week my Heartfelt Creations share is once again showcasing the new Botanic Orchid Collection!  I wanted to do something a little different, so I decided to haul out my watercolor paints and play a little.  I'm not the most gifted when it comes to water coloring, but I thought this turned out okay.

Here's a peek...


I love the pretty softness of the water colored images against the purple and black matting.
This is really a very simple card to create...the only amount of time that can add up is the time you spend water coloring!

Here's a little bit of a closer look at the shaped orchid and the hummingbird.


The beautiful script sentiment used here is also one that is included in the Botanic Orchid Collection!

Well, that's all for me today...short and sweet!
Do remember to pop in at the Heartfelt Creations blog...there's a ton of new projects there for you to view, each bringing with it a new idea for your creative inspirations!

Until next time...

Trim a piece of water color paper that measures 4"x5.25" and stamp the orchid image, along with the sentiment using a permanent black ink.  Set ink with heat tool. Water color using water color paints and fine brush, beginning with orchid image slowly working in different sections so water does not pull in color from other areas.  Water color in blue background.  Using a small amount of water and blue paint on your brush, lightly flick some color onto the card to add small dots to image panel.  Once again using water color paper, stamp the smallest orchid cling stamp set along with the assorted hummingbird cling stamp set.  Water color orchid pieces as well as hummingbird you wish to use.  Shape orchid and humming bird slightly.  Adhere to card as shown.  Once dry, adhere water colored image panel to a purple card stock mat just slightly larger than the panel using dimensional double sided adhesive foam strip.  Then mat panel onto a piece of white card stock as shown.  Using black card stock, cut a mat just slightly smaller than the 5"x7" card base.  Adhere image layers to black mat and then adhere to card base.
