Potted Paper "Climbing Orchid"

Hello stampers!

Sorry for the long hiatus from crafting, my husband and I have been caring for my father in our home since the beginning of the year.  Sadly, we lost him a couple of weeks ago and I haven't felt up to crafting. 

I thought for my first post since his passing, an orchid flower would be fitting to share. I know I've shared many samples using the {Climbing Orchid} stamp set... I told you before that I loved it! You can view my project below. 


I fell in love with the samples in the annual catalogue for this set, especially the one that I based my project on. I am an avid crafter so I had a bunch of clay pots on hand, and grabbed some pruning snips and cut a twig that would be perfect for this project from one of my shrubs.



I coloured the flower petals and leaves with an aquapainter and ink refills. I used Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango and Old Olive for the leaves. I used hot glue to attach the orchids and leaves to the stem. I put a bit of oasis foam to put in the pot.
