Mellow yellow!

Top 3




I decided to decorate a little gift box up using a few foamiran flowers.
The large flower was made using white foamiran, yellow stamen, yellow distress ink and rosy dot AC1 dies from Foamiran Ireland.

The two smaller roses where made using the rosy dot heart flowers die from Scrap and Craft. I used yellow foamiran. This is my first time making the roses and as you can see my very first one is on the right. I did not cover the tin foil enough so that was a learning curve but look at the second. I am very pleased with it.
Leaves are from  Wild Orchard Crafts.

Silk foam flowers






I had a card to make so had a quick play with the silk foam. Wow! I don't think I'll be ordering the foamiran anymore. I am sold on the silk. It's so soft and easy to work with. Rolls and twists perfectly, colours perfectly and doesn't rip as easily! What's not to like....well the price I suppose. It's twice the price of a sheet of foamiran but worth it for special projects.
I cut these with the Heart Flower Rosy Dot dies. I should have added another layer but didn't.
They have been coloured using distress inks, and finished with white stamen.
The card is a new shape for me, think its for the z fold and I really like it.
The papers are from Nitwits.
