I've been playing again this time with the new dies and flower foam from Leane Creatief and I love the effect I get with this.
In this card I used the flowers to accent a panel made with my media plates, the Izink pigment inks and a peacock father. I have had this piece made for quite a while but needed something to accent it and the flowers were perfect.
To make the flowers I used the LeCrea Easy Flower die no 45.4551 ( thats all the name I could find) and cut the flowers ( 3 sizes) out of the white flower foam form the same company. I shaded the petals on both sides using the finger Daubers and light purple pigment ink from Izink. Once shaded I heated the flowers using my heat gun, the longer you heat the foam the more the petals curl up. I added stamen in the centre and added the flowers until I had three separate blooms. I then shaded the matching leaves from the set and added these (shaded in light blue to match the ribbon) I then simply arranged these onto a bow.
I farmes the piece using the Press Cut Notched Rectangle dies in blue and white lustre card.
