For my card today, I had been dreaming about making a gradient back ground of  purples and reds and I knew the voluptuous Lady Slipper Orchid from this stunning stamp set would be the perfect for a back ground like this!

I die cut my oval and then used my Copic Airbrush System to create the fade of purple to the deep reds using V06, R35, R56.  I then coloured my stamped orchid using Copics as well, fussy cut it out, sculpted it with a ball stylus and then added it to the stitched on oval back ground using foam adhesive.

And here’s a close up of that popped up orchid…
