Love

The orchid branch print stamp was one of my favorites from Memory Box in the last release. The clean lines of the orchid are so elegant. 

This is day 2 of my cards being shared over on the Memory Box blog.
 

The background is embossed using an embossing folder on the lovely Memory Box card. Sponge on Adirondack snow cap acrylic paint to soften and highlight the embossing. 
Stamp flower on white cardstock using black archival ink. Repeat multiple times on vellum. Color using white and purple watercolor pencils and paint with water brush. I love the effect of the watercolor pencils on the vellum. The color doesn't really absorb it move around on the vellum.

Have a wonderful day!
