It’s the 25th of the month so that means another digital release from Power Poppy! Here’s my interpretation of the new Ruffled Wild Orchids digital stamp. Known as the Queen of Orchids, Cattleyas put on quite a display with their showy ruffles and gorgeous rainbow hues. With an almost unlimited array of color combinations at your fingertips, you will have a great time being your own Orchid hybridizer, mixing and matching to your heart’s content!
I tested a LOT of color combinations until I finally hit upon one that I was satisfied with. I colored this image several times over the past few days, but I’ve had a migraine off and on since Saturday. All of my attempts looked like angry orchids out of Little Shop of Horrors and I finally realized I was coloring my migraine. A visit to the doctor, a dose of new meds, and a nap later, I colored it again and it doesn’t look like my migraine any more! Here’s my post-migraine color map to help guide your coloring.
Take a look at the inside – this is the sentiment included with the stamp set.
