Iris-Orchid

I so enjoyed the relaxing time I had painting this image from Art Neko called Iris-Orchid Artist Trading Card. I first stamped the image using Memento London Fog as I liked the lighter shade and the London Fog has a hint of green in it. As I was using watercolours I heat set my stamped image before proceeding. To paint I used my Zig Brushes and aqua brush. In the centre of the image I painted using a darker colour, then cut another piece of paper slightly smaller and attached, giving a nice border for my sentiment piece, which I stamped using the 4 Seasons Kanji and English Spring sentiment. I applied foam strips to the back of my image, then attached to the matting, which is in the purple and aqua. And ~ a few sequins to finish. 
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Your Zig markers and aqua brush painted turned out beautifully Kia. I love your colors and your sentiment in the center of your pretty flowers. Wonderful framing too...I think your card deserves a permanent frame my friend. TFS Hugs...
