Orchids for Emmy

Dropping in to show you a card I made for my mother-in-law, Emmy. She is the best MIL, a great role model and she is wonderful with orchids! 

I used the sketch at Fusion Card Challenge found HERE.  The sentiment was stamped on the colored orchid and then die cut out of the panel. I made five more diecuts with plain white cardstock and stacked the diecut before putting back into place.

INK: SU Basic Black, Polychromos color pencils
PAPER: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, SU Strawbery Slush, SU Basic Black

Just Add Orchids

Here is a card I created for the Just Add Ink sketch challenge found HERE.  This is my first time coloring with the Zig Real Color Brush Pens and WOW! They really lay out a lot of vibrant color!  Theses orchids turned out much brighter than I was going for so I left the rest of the card mostly neutral. I tried to color my white taffeta ribbon with the Zig brush pens but the color was not very even so I used my Copic markers to match.
