A Touch of Class

It's time for a new Challenge at Aurora Wings, hosted by team Stella.

Our theme this fortnight is 'A Touch of Class'.

I have recently enrolled in the Kit & Clowder nature class and thought I would attempt to colour my favorite flowers Orchids, I have a row of pots on my kitchen window sil and think they are so beautiful, hopefully I have done them justice.

The image I have used is Orchid Corner.

I started by colouring the Flowers with Copics, I probably should of done the background first, but I had no Idea, where I was going  with this card.

I then used my ink dusters to go around the edge in Pink and Lettuce green, it looked a little too CAS for me, so I found an old swirl stamp and stamped the four corners and also added the sentiment, which is a clear stamp by Inkylicious

Finally I matted onto Cream and Pink card.

We would love to see you join us for out latest challenge HERE
