Hero Arts Large Orchid

I love layering stamp sets and strangely enough this is my first one! The Layering Large Orchid by Hero Arts is just beautiful! My best girlfriend loves Orchids and purple is her favourite colour, she is a March birthday so I made this one for her.  I will also submit it to the current Hero Arts Fabulous Flowers Challenge.




I love to colour but I must say this layering with ink is so fun and I, personally, find it gives a stunning effect.  I made a template with various inks and for this card I preferred this mix. My base ink is Hero Arts Soft Vanilla (love this colour) I then used SSS Hot Mama and Blue Violet and for the centre of the flower I used Hero Arts Butter Bar (another favourite of mine).  I used Hero Arts Green Hills ink for the stem which I stamped twice to make the Orchid longer. I then stamped a birthday sentiment from the Hero Arts It's Your Day, a mix of sequins and some white gell pen.

Happy Sunday! Thanks for taking the time!
