Orchids in the Rain

Orchids have been my favourite flower since forever :)

I even remember when I was a little girl, buying one for my Mum on Mothers day, they came individually in a little tiny glass bowl of water and I thought they were so exotic.

Anyway todays card is another Aurora Wings image, that I won recently.

She is called 'Orchids in the Rain'.  I have coloured her with Copics and used another favourite of mine TURQUOISE, I just love this colour.

I have finally got proper blending card - I am using 'Make it Colour ' Blending Card, but I still seem to have a little trouble with my blending!  I guess I just need to practice more.

The Flourish is Memory box, the White Orchid is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment was drawn on my silhouette Cameo.

Ooh and I also made my own watermark in Watermark Pro, think it needs some tweaking though.

Thanks for stopping by :)
