Climbing Orchid and Wood Textures Paper Card

I wanted to share with you my most recent card today using the Climbing Orchid from Stampin' Up! and 2 AMAZING offers that are running this month. These are a little further below in the post. 

I was challenged to use 3 colours in a card (Real Red, Pacific Point and Peekaboo Peach) on a group I am a part of on Facebook Stampin' Up! Colour Challenge and there are 2 ways to play along - ask for challenge and someone will give you a set of colours or join in with our weekly challenge it is up to you!!! #SUcolorchallenge

I started this card by making the orchids using the Climbing Orchid stamp set. I did struggle at first with these colours so I decided to water colour them so they blended better together. On water colour paper i stamped the outlines for the 6 individual orchid pieces in Peekaboo Peach ink. I did a first watercolour wash of Real Red ink with an Aqua Painter on the larger orchid leaving it to dry and the going back in and adding a touch of a Peekaboo Peach ink wash. For the smaller orchid I added a Pacific Point ink wash adding a second layer once he first was dry to add some intensity. I die cut all the pieces using the co coordinating Orchid Builder Framelits in the Big Shot. I curse the edged of the petal with my Bone Folder and attached the layers using Glue Dots, Stampin & Mini Dimensionals. I added them to Wood Textures Paper background that I stamped the stems from the Climbing Orchid stamp set in Early Espresso ink. I added the sentiment in Real Red Ink and added some Wink Of Stellar over it and the orchis centres to give it some sparkle. I matted the Wood textures layer onto a piece of Real Red card stock and then onto a Early Espresso card base. As a finishing touch I added some Pacific Point Glitter Enamel Dots.

Here is a closer look at the Wink Of Stellar Shine
