Today I have some flowers to show you that I have made with peach flower shaping foam from iCraft.  I have used my favourite die 95020 and made three different flowers from the same die.  Styrofoam buds make it so easy to create gorgeous flowers in a variety of different ways.  I have coloured the peach foam with Ranger Archival Magenta Hue ink.

Silk Watercolour Fantasy

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have a card made from iCraft products – silk foam, flower and sentiment dies and a resin embellishment that I have used Prima patina pastes on.

 

This silk foam is really lovely to work with and does not require any heating at all.  I have used Ranger Archival inks to colour the foam to coordinate with the background paper – Watercolour Fantasy.  The pollens matched the paper and flowers perfectly.
