Welcome to my Creative Space!

On Tuesday I posted a video for my very first Foamiran flowers with a DIY video. I used those flowers for this card I created as DT inspiration for the Scrap & Craft June Challenge to create your own flowers and use them in your project. If you haven't had a chance to view the video full of helpful tips on working with Foamiran, you can scroll down to my previous blog post, or view it on my YouTube channel HERE.

You can see how my flowers progressed as I learned to work with the Foamiran. I created the large rose in the center first, then the smaller one on the lower right side and the last one I made is on the left with more delicate and realistic petal edges.

I cut out and inked the edges of the center images and fussy cut the doily shape tucked into the cluster. They all came from the Studio75 ~ Cherry Blossom paper set while the background papers are from the Studio75 ~ Cherry Blossom 6x6 paper set.

The background is embossed using Finnabair's Light Paste with a flourish stencil, then when dry I applied Lindy's Frosty Forest Green and Alpine Ice Rose Starburst mists.

I used three different embossing powders for the chipboard pieces. Ivory for the chicken wire, shabby white for the gears, and Verdant for the leaf flourishes.

I adhered the pearls, art stones, Prills, and microbeads with Bambino Glue from the Scrap & Craft Store.
