Ladys Slipper Orchid with Lace (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have a design today featuring the gorgeous new cling single - Ladys Slipper Orchid.

The larger background was created with Evergreen and Pistachio Distress Stain Sprays.   I over stamped using a fragment from Lace Fragments with Evergreen Distress Ink.  When dry I embossed a lace stamp with white across the top and bottom, also from Lace Fragments.    I coloured the Orchid with pencils.   The ribbon is purple which looks very dark in the photo.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,


  1. Very pretty. I love the white lace stamp.

  2. Love the colours you have used, so pretty and the lace stamp works really well too. Wish I had your eye for colour.

  3. stunning work - the colours are gorgeous - and the lace looks fabulous! Hugs rachel xx

  4. Beautiful colours - love it :)

  5. Absolutely gorgeous, Shirley!

  6. Lovin that orchard and colors

  7. This is totally gorgeous Shirley and love the new pistachio distress ink and the lovely lace fragments you have used in the background work so beautifully with this pretty Orchid. I also love the white embossed lace at the top and bottom which frames it so prettily. x

  8. Oh wow, beautiful backgrounds for the lily! It really pops and looks like she growes in a ful and green garden!

  9. Fascinating use of the lace fragments stamp both top & bottom of the background creating a very effective frame which echoes the frame of the focal image itself. The white with the green & purple is a lovely colour scheme.
