Lattice Orchids (by Julie)

Hello, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and as this is my last post for this year I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year! I have two projects that I hope you will like, made with two of the fantastic background stamps. My first is this plaque, made with the Baroque Orchids cling mounted stamp.

 

The base of this plaque is a large square of chipboard and I have stuck a piece of spare chipboard on the back to make a stand, much the same way as a standard picture frame works.
The centre is made up of letters cut with an electronic cutting machine and then over stamped with the Baroque Orchid using Onyx Black Versafine. The "O" is a piece of white polymer clay, cut with a heart cookie cutter and over stamped using the Versafine. Once baked I added a piece of cord around the edge of the heart with a hot glue gun and then stitched some seed beads around the cord edge, before adhering to the plaque with more hot glue. I have added layers of silver mirri card, black card and a stamped background using the Baroque Orchid.



This card has been made with the Studded Lattice cling mounted stamp along with Wild Meadow and Mackintosh Sentiments sets.
The base card was created with Pan Pastels. I then inked up the Studded Lattice with Versamark and randomly stamped around the background before brushing black and metallic Pan Pastel over the top. I then applied a fixative spray over the top.
For the decorative panel I stamped the Studded Lattice onto white card and coloured with Polycrhomos pencils. The wild grass is from the Wild Meadow set and was over-stamped with Onyx Black Versafine.
To finish off I inked up the With Love sentiment with Onyx Black Versafine and stamped over the Pan Pastel Background.

Many thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again very soon,

  2. Two beautiful creations Julie and the first especially appeals to me with the Baroque Orchid stamping and the heart in the polymer clay is a wonderful idea and makes a very decorative 'O'. The Studded Lattice works well on the second card with the addition of one of the Wild Meadow flowers and all the colours go well together. Wishing you a wonderfully creative new year. x
