Violin with foamiran flowers

Hi guys, I just got some of the fabulous foamiran from Noor Design UK to make my first foamiran flowers with and gosh I love it, I had this daft urge to also make a violin, don't ask me why!!! so I got a image of the internet and after tracing round the image and cutting it out I then decided to make it into a 3D Violin,
I used a Die cut from Tracy at Noor design UK too use as the string holder, this was an oval shape so I cut it down and used two of the ends sticking them together to make it stronger,
Excuse the tired strings, I hadn't any stronger twine and this just bended and kinked, and wouldn't stay were it was supposed to, so hopefully it looks like it a well loved musical instrument, lol
I used the gorgeous papers by Maja Design from the Vintage Romance collection, I also used some  gorgeous lace from my stash,
I  played about with bits of paper, then hand cut all the other bits needed for the strings,
I made the flowers with the white foamiran, from Tracy at Noor design UK, cut them out with  some flower die cuts then coloured and shaped them, the stamens I had in my stash too,
I wanted some small leaves so I cut some free hand ( a great way to use up bits left over too) and scored them in the middle with a pricking  tool after I had coloured them,
Another view of the flowers,
I will certainly be wanting more of this foamiran as I love using it, if you have any questions, feel free to ask,
I then finished off my Violin with some pearls from my stash,
Happy Crafting!!
