A little bit tropical

Hi guys, as you know i love to create my own Handmade Foamiran flowers, I've not as much spart time at the minute as we have a 10 week old puppy plus I look after my daughters in the day time when she's at work too,


Anyway the weathers awful and I needed cheering up so I made myself some tropical themed type flowers, 

For the white one I used 0.6 Foamiran and then the Lady E Design Flower die 003, simply adding a little shading in the centre, hard to see and some stamens from my stash,

The yellow flower is made with the flower7 Crocus dies, using two  of the larger 3 petal heads and 1 of the medium flower heads,


This flower has a little additional colouring on the inner petals with some Geletos, I also deliberately tore on the lower petals to give a different look, I then used some stamens from my stash along with the stamens from the die set too,

I hand cut a couple of Palm leaves for underneath the flowers and fixed them onto a hair comb, they do look better in real life it's hard to get a good photo, lol

Anyway I thought I'd show you another couple of ways to use the dies you may already have in your stash, play around with the dies you have you never know what you will come up with,

Happy Crafting!!!

Hi Liz. Love your use of dies and your color combinations. Also enjoyed your comment (advice) regarding using the dies your have. I try to stay up on current releases but oftem find my "retired" dies to be my favorites.
