Sneak Peaks Day 1- Orchids!

Hello Friends,

  We all know the signature of Flourishes is timeless images that will be true today, tomorrow, and in the future.  We also know that we love our florals and that no one does them better that Marcella Hawley!  She has the perfect preception for her florals and provides them in such a format that all of us can look great when coloring her designs.  Marcella  has taken a royal flower that speaks to special times and memories in so many lives.  She has done Orchids!  Several stunning images in this beautiful set will certainly provide those  AH! moments.  So without further adieu let me introduce….

Today my card with this new set has taken on an Oriental flair

This card base is 6″x6″ black cardstock.  The next layer is a piece of tissue like paper that I mounted on Flourishes Ivory cardstock to give it some body.  This paper was a gift from a friend and she had found in an oriental market.  I have had it for some time and wanted to do something special  with it.  The orchid was stamped on Flourishes White cardstock–it is great to use with Copics– it was then colored with Copics from the Tea Rose and Fields Flourishes Copic collections.  I highlighted with a touch of G19 (Holly collection) to darken up the stem.  I cut the image out with my exacto knife and mounted it with foam tape to pop it up.  I added three squares of rhinestones from the Flourishes sale page to the left corner and then accented the sentiment with a smaller version as well.
