Orchids

Afternoon all.
What a beautiful day it is. Sunny, bright and very relaxing, especially watching hubby mow the jungle, after I came home from work.
For today's card, I left my pro markers in there box - don't faint, I know it's a bit of a shock.
Firstly the image was stamped in black onto a white piece of card. Then the coloured image was created by colouring with whispers pens straight onto the stamp, spritzing, and then stamping onto vellum. The vellum was cut down and laid over the black image, and held in place with two metallic brads. Part of the vellum was then torn away to reveal some of the black image below. I hope that makes kind of sense :o)
I'm on a roll with today's challenges;
Our Creative Corner - blooming blossoms
Secret Crafter - distressing (torn vellum)
One Stop Craft - metallic (brads & mirror card)
Crafty Creations - distressing (torn vellum)
The Creative Cottage - going green
Die Cut Dreams - tearing
and finally
Stampin' for the Weekend - getting to know you (Wild Orchids)
