One last Orchid

Today I am sharing my last Botanic Orchid project for Heartfelt Creations before a brand new collection release next week. I noticed that a few of the other designers has been playing with using the orchid petals in different ways, so i thought that I would have a try myself. I also had a bit of a play using my new Distress crayons to add the colours to the petals. I really like how I could blend the colours with my fingers right on the petal itself.

I layered all the petals of the same shape instead of mixing the two, then used the other shape all crinkled up as buds. Adding stamens to the flower centres also gave the flower a very different loo to the orchids. 

Some classic foliage behind the flowers really added to the clusters, while some glass glitter made the petals all shiny.

Over on the blog, Dorota Kopec, who is one of our new design team members, has been using the Heartfelt products in quite a different way. Her blog is well worth a look.
