Today is actually my birthday. So far I have been taken out to lunch by a couple of friends and this evening my husband is taking me out for a meal. So apart from having to work this morning quite a nice day.
I am sharing my first try with Foamiran. I have been seeing all the beautiful flowers on Facebook and other peoples blogs so I ordered some and it came yesterday. I still have a lot to learn.
I did start with the flowers. They took a while to make. I watched some YouTube videos to see what to do, but being me I did my own thing a bit. I wanted to use a lattice so I found my Stitched Lattice frames set by Sue Wilson.
These flowers are my second attempt. I have thrown away my first attempt. I know they aren't like other peoples I have quite a bit to learn. The centres were made with Babies Breath silk flowers that I bought for the wedding but didn't need. That is where the leaves came from too. Part of the reason I wanted to make this type of flower is the bits and bobs I bought for the wedding but ended up not needing. Plans have evolved and changed over time.
I made a flag with the Stitched Flag dies by Sue Wilson and I used some Britannia dies to make the sentiment.
I was quite pleased with how this card turned out. I will be having another go with the foam. I got better as I went along so I want another play.
Enjoy the rest of the day.
