It's challenge time at.....

The theme is as always anything goes,
so why not get out your Foamiran and join us, we would love to see your foamiran flower creations,
there will be a top three and
you could be in with a chance to win  25 Euro to spend in the 14 Craft bar store

I have made a card for Christmas using some of the fabulous Foamiran, stencil, stamens, berries, and leaf type products all available over at the  14 Craft Bar shop,

So I used some of the fabulous papers from the UHK Gallery Frosty Morning 12" x 12" paper pad, this pad is full of fabulous patterns and colours and also  include some tags, one of which I've used on my card, this I fussy cut out and distressed the edges, to match my background papers,

I used one of the fabulous new stencils this time 06 to make my Poinsettia styled flowers using 012/ light grey Foamiran for the flower heads, these stencils are great as you just use them to trace around with a tooth pick or skewer and then cut them out with your scissors, you can cut out more then one at a time too by placing up to four layers  of Foamiran together, this is also  fab if you don't have a die cutting machine too, I added some colour on the edges of the petals with some Gallery oil pastels in  colour 540,

I added some of the gorgeous 2mm Pearl stamens 2/040 in the centre of the flowers after I glued the layers together, off setting the petals on each layer, then I finished off the flowers with 021 Green Foamiran for a Calyx type backing for my Poinsettias,

I then added some hand cut Holly leaves again from the same stencil using 018/Grass Green, I added some veins onto the cut out leaves using a skewer, then I added a little colour on the edges with some oil pastels and finally added some Snowtex too,
To finish off my card I added some of the lovely red Berries here and there and then I trimmed down one of the fabulous leaves 001, again adding some Snowtex here and there too, these leaves make great fillers for inbetween your flowers,

So don't forget to join us in our challenge,
and check out all the gorgeous products Agnes has in her online shop too,
Happy Crafting!!!
