Watercolor Orchids

Good morning! Diana here, and I'm excited to show you a new technique I tried after seeing this card.

I placed the Cattleya Orchids Gold Outline Sticker sheet by Elizabeth Craft Designs onto watercolor paper and painted using the Twinkling H2O's Thankful set. After it was dried, I peeled off the sticker to reveal the clean white lines.  Isn't the effect just wonderful?  I love how shimmery it is in real life.

To frame my tiny little painting, I did some "off the edge" die cutting with the oval from the Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight set. I cut in halfway with the oval, turned it around and cut into the other half, leaving the top bud and bottom stem whole. I then cut that around by hand. The large A2 Filigree Delight die is then matted on purple card stock, on top of a white base layer. I then added the intricate side dies by trimming off the lacy part of the Tranquil Moments by Spellbinders, (not in store) to the side of my card.

Finally, I added some pearls with the Ice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen. I don't think I've ever not added pearls to this die cut!

Thanks for looking and I hope you've been inspired to do some "paint in the lines"!
