FOAMIRAN FLOWERS

Hi there!
Have you seen the new crafty craze - Foamiran flowers?
Well I saw THIS CARD made by the super talented Bev Rochester and I was hooked!
I knew that I had to CASE the card for my mums birthday as it is just her all over!
So thank you Bev for the inspiration and my new found love:






Sorry for the photo overload but I am extremely pleased with the end result. It took along time to make but worth it I think.
Bev has some amazing video tutorials on her blog of how to make the flowers.
I think that I will invest in some oil pastels to colour my flowers as I used SU ink pads but had pink hands for days!

I used:
Happy Birthday die  Spellbinders (layered up several times for dimension)
Mum die from Clearly Besotted (also layered)
Frame from EBay
Bottle originally filled with glitter emptied out and filled with seed beads
I thought that the ribbon was from The Ribbon Girl but I can't find it at the store.
my mini sewing machine!

Challenges:
As you like it challenge 'peals or gems and why'  mine would have to be pearls as they are more subtle and elegant.

I am happy to say that my mum loved the card!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Hello again!
I'm back with another card - this time from a CD:




The image is from the Jane Shasky 'From the heart of the garden' CD - there are so many beautiful images on this double CD set that I'm sure to use it very often!
The papers are from LemonCraft 'house of roses', Stampin' Up ribbon and candy dots and butterfly punch from my stash.
You probably can't see it but I went around the papers with a dressmaking tracing wheel to add texture. I also inked the edges of everything.

Hi there!
After seeing the stunning cards made by Pauline I just had to buy this CD!

Spellbinders 'Heirloom Oval' die
pearls and butterflies from stash

Challenges:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely day!
