Anything goes at LHOSM with a no heat Foamiran flower tutorials too

Hi guys, I'm here today with my first creation as a DT member for the 
we are being kindly sponsored by Noor design UK

The theme  is 'anything goes'
 so I thought I'd show you another Easter creation I had made,
I used Sitting Spring Tilda and Forget me not Tilda, both are coloured with my distress inks, then fussy cut out,
I made my Easter eggs in the same way as I did the last ones, there is a tutorial at the top of my blog on how I altered them, only this time I added a hint of lace on the edge, then again I used some cheesecloth in the center of the egg for Tilda to sit on, I also used some vintage seam binding  at one end of the egg,
In this half of the egg I also added a feather too, I fixed some moss in front of Sitting Spring tilda and some glitter style eggs too,

To finish off the scene I added a  die cut tree, onto which I added one of my handmade air dried clay butterflies,
The  flowers are made with a Spellbinders Hydrangea die, and the larger ones with one of the Rosy Dot AC3 dies, with some Foamiran, I will pop a little tutorial on these below,


I cut out this La La lands tree die out of some chipboard simply adding some natural coloured Foamiran tiny flowers too, using a Cheery Lynn baby's breath die,

 Hydrangea Flower tutorial: 😊

Fold your Foamiran in three and run through your die cutting machine,



Separate all the flowers and colour on both sides with a wet wipe or wet kitchen roll piece with some Gelatos,

Place the coloured flowers onto a foam mat and using a small ball tool press in the center of each flower,

Use as required,

Larger flower Tutorial:

Fold your Foamiran over four times and run the larger and smaller six pointed petal dies through your die cutting machine (makes two flowers)
shown here


I coloured the flowers the same way as before,

Fold the Foamiran petals together then twist and roll the flower over in your hands and between your fingers till they resemble these below,

open up the flowers and  very lightly smooth the middle of each petal with your fingers, when all pieces are done to this stage, take your glue gun and layer on top of each other using two larger ones below then two of the smaller flowers next, staggering the petals each time, I left these with out stamens this time,


I think they look slightly like a water lily, but that's just me, lol
