Air-dry clay roses!

I recently treated myself to this set of fmm cutters and vein mats.

I also purchased some white clay, blue clay and green clay.
And this is what I came up with.
My first first clay roses and leaves in pink
I mixed some red distress ink into white clay until I was happy with the colour.
Each one looks a bit different as with practice I was getting the hang of it better lol.

My next batch I mixed some blue clay into the white but used a wee bit too much, hence the deep blue colour lol. Again I couldn't resist using the left overs, mixed with some more white clay to make blue leaves.

Here is a close up of the veins on the leaves and the large rose.

And here is how I used some of those blue flowers!

I will post a finished project with these so you can see how they look on a card.

Wedding Day gift wallet

Finally getting a chance to share one of my recent foam flower makes.
This is a gift wallet for my Son's wedding from his Granny.
I went with orange as he lives in Co. Armagh, so that's their colours. The flower is made using white foamarian and I delicately coloured with orange distress inks.
The stamen are  a mix of gold and white and the leaves are paper.
I used a LOTV stamp, coloured with promarkers.

Foamiran Confirmation card

Haven't had much time for posting or making flowers recently but hopefully that will change soon.
I did made this Confirmation card though.
The flowers were made from white silk foamarin and Rosy Owl heart flower dies.
I coloured them with Gelatoes.
The leaves are also cut from green foam using a leaf die from The Works
The  rest of the dies are from Spellbinders.
I added large pearls to the flowers.

Mellow yellow!

Top 3

I decided to decorate a little gift box up using a few foamiran flowers.
The large flower was made using white foamiran, yellow stamen, yellow distress ink and rosy dot AC1 dies from Foamiran Ireland.

The two smaller roses where made using the rosy dot heart flowers die from Scrap and Craft. I used yellow foamiran. This is my first time making the roses and as you can see my very first one is on the right. I did not cover the tin foil enough so that was a learning curve but look at the second. I am very pleased with it.
Leaves are from  Wild Orchard Crafts.

Papers used are from We R Memory Keepers
