Just Because

Some watercolour paper dampened with a brush and water, then watercolours dropped in and dried before patting into the beads of colour still on the craft mat, makes a pretty background for some Foamiran flowers (you've got to try this stuff).  I added Simon Says Stamp die cut Clustered Leaves and some more flowers from The Ribbon Girl and yummy Silver Glitter Paint.  Also some twine and clear drop flatback beads.  

The sentiment was computer generated, cut out and edged with some Worn Lipstick distress ink.

More foamiran flowers

I've been playing with Foamiran again.  It's addictive!  I used some lilac and white Foamiran and after die cutting the foam I coloured the white foam with Gelatos before heating and shaping the flowers. The papers are from Dealz (get in there, they have some gorgeous little paper packs .... 1.49 of course.  While we're talking about Dealz, if you buy their pack of little travel containers for toiletries, it contains two spray bottles ideal for craft - fill with just plain water or add some Perfect Pearls or Brusho powders etc.  Have you SEEN what some sites charge for a little old spray bottle??? sorry, back to the card...)

I used a Tim Holtz stencil and embossing paste for texture on a circle die cut, added a scalloped circle die cut, Scrapiniec chipboard, a die cut butterfly coloured with Altenew inks, and another addictive thing .... micro beads.  Gorgeous on nails, too.

While I had everything out I made another card with the same supplies and just changed things up with glitter and cheesecloth.

The leaves were cut from Papermania coloured cardstock with a Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves die.

Use a Triangle at Craft for the Craic

For August at Craft for the Craic the challenge is to use a triangle.  I made a triangular gift box from some pretty Lemoncraft 12 x 12 paper.

Once the box was made I made a Foamiran flower from matching foam from Foamiran Ireland and coloured some Tim Holtz flower ribbon with a blue Gelato and water.  The leaves were cut from an Altenew die and the other elements are from The Ribbon Girl.

I hope you'll join us this month at Craft for the Craic.
