Orchids

It was just nice to be able to do some Copic marker colouring yesterday. The colours are not as strong as this photo shows - I used quite subtle pink shades. I used to grow lots of these phalaenopsis or moth orchids and they come in many different colours and shades including these dark pinks.

I did not add lumpy embellishments here as it has to be sent through the post and I would like it to get to its destination still looking good.

This is the first time [shame] that I have die cut with some of the image outside the cutting line. It worked out OK !

Pretty, pretty. Beautiful colouring, and you don't even have an air brush. Very clever. Love this card.

Gorgeous! Those flowers are fabulous. I am yet to use COPICS, but it is one of my 2012 goals to take a class.
