...my true love introduced to me: Iron Orchid Décor! IOD has the most gorgeous shabby-chic style. Not only do they offer wonderful wood décor pieces, but the line includes smaller elements, which are perfect for holiday cards, tags, and ornaments! Have you ever tried their easy-to-use Paintable cards? Gorgeous patterns are printed right on the watercolor paper. You can use them as-is, or color them with any of our art mediums for a truly customizable project. (Hint! The Paintables pair beautifully with our new IOD water-soluble Oil Pastels.) Once you are happy with your coloring just embellish with exquisite IOD metals for a true keepsake piece that you will always cherish.
"I went romantic with these decorations! I used the IOD Paintables as the base, and cut off the sweet bird houses from the “Secret Garden” set. IOD Oil Pastels were used to color the images lightly. Then, on top, I added the awesome Iron Orchid Décor metal embellishments (lightening them up with White Gesso.) To add a touch of romance to the decorations I added Prima blooms and lace embellishments." ~ Riikka Kovasin
