It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have great sketch.
This was a perfect sketch to use my new stamp set and thinlits, the Climbing Orchid bundle. I always knew I would get this bundle. When I first saw the catalog and saw this stamp set it reminded me of my Mom. My Mom loved orchids and she grew beautiful ones. There was always a pot of blooming orchids in the house. My paper orchids are the best I can do since I did not inherit her green thumb.
I made these orchids out of card stock vellum and embossed them with my custom glitter/embossing powder mix known as Glittery Goodness. It is very important when you emboss vellum that you first rub it with the Embossing Buddy. The Embossing Buddy helps prevent stray grains of embossing powder from sticking where you don't want it to.
Here is a close up and I hope you can see some of the glitter on the petals. It really is a pretty and very delicate look.
I hope you will join in the challenge. Please head on over the the Create with Connie and Mary blog and be sure to check out what the other designers created with this sketch.
