Lady's Slipper Orchid !

Good Morning Everyone, start of another week and I hope you are all well.
It's a gorgeous sunny morning here, Alistair left early to go and walk in the Cairngorms, whilst I'm having an at home day, catching up with some chores and and a bit of knitting.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my CCC card, your all very kind.

Here is today's card;
I've used CB Lady's Slipper Orchid stamp and coloured with a mixture of DI and SN Aqua Pens,
WOS for shimmer.
Background stamped with CB Seasonal Fragments, and matted on to a background of watercolour wash with DI. Ribbon and gems to finish off. I did have a lovely large dazzler on the bow, but lost it somewhere between table and camera and didn't notice.
Now you might not see so much of the blue shade, but there is a little on the petals of the orchid.

I found this particular flower a tad difficult to colour, had to pull up some images of the flower, and they are quite a complicated flower to even look at, although they are stunning.

Anyway that's me for today,

I would like to enter my card into:

Hi Kate, what a lovely colour challenge, I love your orchid stamp, very pretty.
Thank you very much for your donation and the beautiful card. The boys gave me it last night! They'd put it to one side for me and not mentioned it. Boys! I'd been food shopping when the post arrived and they'd forgotten all about it.

I hope you had a lovely weekend and that you also have the great weather we have today?

Hugs Erika. x
