In the Friday Live show with Els there was a question if we have a Floral die where we can make an Orchid with, so this is where I came up with…………and I promised to do a step by step blogpost so here it is!
I used the Florals dies nr: Florals 4 Florals 12 florals 18 Florals 16
So this was the example I made and the next one with the frame we are making!
We are making a double frame and on top I combine the orchids with some other flowers.
Cut everything you see here and cut 5 of each flower and 4 of the stamens
Take the bigger flowers and cut 2 petals off so you have 2 left on the top and 1 on the bottom.
Take the light Green Ink and ink the big flowers in the center, put Yellow on the tiny ones in the center.
Color the stamens Green.
Put your tweezer on the bottom and fold the petal around it.
Shape these flowers on the back, then turn them and press in the center.
Take the tiny flower and fold the top 2 petals inside up and the bottom one to the back, put tiny orange dots on them.
Now glue all the 3 flowers on top of each other see the photo.
make all 5 of them and put some yellow flocking powder in the center.
Glue the stamens together.
Glue the flowers on the stamens and put those extra knops on there aswell.
For extra I cut these flowers and leaves out , colored them and they go on the frame as well, I didn’t do this step by step because the frames Els did so you can check her live videos to see how to make a frame and then you can decorate it.
So I hope you liked this step by step tutorial for the orchids.
I used the next dies:
Florals 4 – 12 – 18 – 16 – 19 – 15 – Boxframe – ferns – Leaves
