Orchids - SUO Challenges #179

The challenge with SUO challenges this week is to feature a favourite product from the new annual catalogue.  There are so many wonderful products that it was hard to choose one, but the Orchid stamp set with its coordinating framelits won my heart.  I'm just a flower gal I guess.





Four Orchid blossoms were created and then adhered to a  curved wire with three leaves were attached  near the bottom of the stem.

Each orchid flower consists of 3 layers - four if the center is counted.
Except for the stamen, all layers were stamped with Rich Razzelberry ink - the top 2 on Sweet Sugarplum and the bottom on Rich Razzelberry.  The center was stamped with Crushed Curry on Daffodil Delight card stock.  The leaves were stamped using Always Artichoke ink on Old Olive card stock.

After die cutting each flower layer with the coordinating framelit dies, the edges were sponged with Rich Razzelberry ink - even the center.  In addition, the flower center was also dotted with a Rich Razzelberry marker.

Each petal was shaped and formed with a stylus and  bone folder and then layered together, adhering them with a glue gun - starting with the Rich Razzelberry petal on the bottom

I used the hot glue gun to adhere them to the wire stem.

The edges of the leaves were sponged with Always Artichoke ink, and after shaping and forming with a stylus and bone folder, they were adhered near the bottom of the stem.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Climbing Orchid
Inks:  Rich Razzelberry, Always Artichoke, Rich Razzelberry marker
Papers:  Rich Razzelberry, Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive
