orange rose of victoria

i have just gotten back from the south pacific convention 
and we were lucky enough to have a play
 with the new blendabilities coming from stampin up 
but also got a free stamp set and pens to play with
i love being a demo!!

so i decided to use my new goodies for a colour challenge 
using our favourite colour
mine is orange so these pens are pretty close
we were also encouraged to use our favourite colour 
in a new colour combo 
so i used a colour i don't like 
(old olive) and soft suede

 i also made a box card using the tutorial from split coast stampers which was easy to follow
i made mine with naturals specialty card which made it quite chunky and hard to fold
....just so you know lolol
firstly i stamped the flower using versamark and black embossing powder 
(although there will be a momento black ink especially for this purpose very soon)
 i coloured in the new flower stamp from the 14/15 catalogue using the new blendabilities we got
i started using the lightest one first and then got darker and darker
around the edges i used normal pumpkin and caramel markers and then added some crystal effects
inside the box/card i used some watercolour wonder dsp and a stamp from a new stamp set
this was sent to a friend for her birthday 

cheers ears
