I used a Marvy pansy punch to make the orchids by trimming the punched pieces to look more like the orchid petals. I also used the memory box tulip petals dies for the centers of the orchids. All parts were punched out of shimmer white card stock and painted with “twinkling H2O’s Pink Azalea” and LuminArte Black Cherry and Sunflower for the center portions. Several styluses were used for stirring, cupping and shaping and a QuicKutz cookie cutter "Vine" die.
This card is also for the
MIX2 It's Not Hard To Resist (2/8/13) by Jeanne S who suggested the Embossing Resist technique (found in tutorials)
I first stamped the damask background onto white card stock and heat embossed with white powder. I then stamped the script and sponged the entire panel with Canary and Pink inks from pads.
Thank you all for viewing!

True artistry! Your orchids ROCK!!! I love the use of a punch for one flower to create an entirely different one. I myself, wouldn't even begin to know how to do that... I love the emboss resist in the back ground. This card is a WOW card of the highest measure! ABSOLUTELY into my fav's!!!
