Mini Roses from Foamiran Tutorial

Shoo!  It's taken me a while to get my act together but at last I've managed to get a video uploaded on my You Tube Channel showing how I make these little roses using the Peony Flower die set that I designed for Whimsy Stamps (link below)

I have a few more videos planned in the coming weeks using this die set as well as others.

Kittens and Foamiran Flowers

I just love the little animals that Whimsy Stamps do.  I’ve coloured up Kitten Flowers from the new release – too stinkin’ cute!  The flowers are all made from Foamiran using my Peony flower dies that I designed.  I love that I can get so many different looking flowers from just the one die set. 
Ive also used the Furever Friends die set (the paw print heart and also the sentiment on the little tag) and added one of my favourite sentiments from the Handmade From Me stamp set


I coloured the image with copics, then decided I wanted more of a “furry” look so just used a white Prismacolor pencil and stroked some fur onto the kitty.  Love how this turned out Smile

Copic colours used:
Kitty: C5, 3, 1, 0, 00, R20, R00
Aqua: BG13, 11, 10, 000
Pink: R85, 81, RV000
Greem: YG67, G43, 40


A closer look at the flowers, I used all three sizes in the die set as well as the leaves (which are cut from pearlescent green card).  The flowers started life out as white foamiran which I coloured with a pigment and chalk inks.


You can see the depth of the flowers better in the picture below.


The sentiment fitted perfect on the tag


Last one, promise!  I have a flower making (using my Peony dies and foamiran) video to upload to my You Tube Channel this weekend, I’ll pop a post on here with the link when it’s live.

Have a fantabulous weekend Smile

The flowers are made from white Foamiran which, once coloured with pigment/chalk inks and gently heated made for such a pretty display.  The leaves are also from the die set and are cut from patterened paper.
