You are special

  Here's a watercolor card i made :)

I recently went on a trip to Darjeeling & Gangtok where i visited the flower garden. It was full of orchid flowers in every mesmerizing color combination one could possibpy imagine. Orchids are always in my list of loveables & this experience just increased my affinity towards those beautiful beings :)
This is just an initial experimental version & am hoping to do more of orchid paintings in the future :)
Please excuse this loooonng story of mine ;)

I made a rough sketch on scrap white paper & transferred the fair outline on to the watercolor paper(Brustro's)
I've followed the emboss resist technique to color this one.
I used Zig embossing pen (brush tip) to draw over the outline & heat embossed with Ranger white embossing powder.

Colored the image with spun sugar, memento rosebud,lilac posies, sweet plum for the flower &  shabby shutters, mowed lawn, memento dandelion inks for the stem & leaves using Koi waterbrush. (Yes am addicted to that little tool;))
Distressed the edges with broken china & salty ocean DI.

Stuck the panel onto textured purple cardbase (Fabriano). I've done some random stamping & brush lettering for the sentiment "you are special". Got tonnes to improve in that area..!!!
I've also stamped a birthday greeting inside :)

Hope you liked it.
Do lemme kno ur comments. Thanks for your time :)
Create. Have fun.
