Hi all 🙂
I just had to use this gorgeous ‘Oriental Orchids‘ stamp set from Altenew as soon as it arrived on my doorstep. This awesome set is designed by May Park. I used the inspiration photo from this month’s Altenew Challenge ‘Navy and Coral‘ …
I distressed a card panel 4.25 inches by 5.25 inches, using chipped sapphire distress ink… Then I used a mini mister to get the awesome speckled effect. Then using the ‘I Love you’ sentiment from the same set, I stamped it with jet black archival ink.
I used the shutter cover plate die by Altenew to cut out some kraft card stock… cut it in half and adhered it to my panel. Then I heat embossed the orchid outlines on vellum with creamy white embossing powder, fussy cut them all and arranged them around a branch and some twine. I totally loved how it turned out. Here is a close-up.
