Let's get Vintage...

Hi everyone :)
I hope you have had a nice day so far.

From the moment I saw gorgeous flowers on Ala Alina Facebook page
I wanted to make a similar one...
...and I did :)


It took a while to even try because I am not confident with silk foamiran
as I would like to be. However it is not as bad as I thought :)


To colour my leaves and petals I used mix of Gallery oil and dry pastels.


I'm not entirely happy with the way the leaves turned out
however Im sure if I practice I can make them the way I want them :)


All product I used are available in my shop 


Thank you so much for your time 
and I hope you like my Vintage rose :)

Tag & foamiran flowers

Hi everyone :)
Finally I decided to use some of these flowers I made over the last few weeks
and a tag was something I wanted to do for a quite a while
but I didn't have time :)


and Studio 75 paper 01 from Mr & Mrs Black collection.
I think they look amazing together :)


I stitched the edges by hand as Im not very good with sewing machine.
Need practice more lol

I love chipboards... right after foamiran ;)
This time I chose Anemone - Vintage Birdcage


Of course I decorated my tag with foamiran flowers... lots of them :)
I cut them out with CraftPassion dies - Flower Set 03 and Flower Set 04.


I coloured just a large flower... with a pink oil pastel. 
To made rest of them I simply used different colours of foamiran... nothing more:
white, rich yellow, mocha, flesh tone, peach, salmon and olive green for leaves.
I added stamens as well... matt stamens, glass stamens and decorative plastic stamens.


I finished my tag with natural sisal, sparkly flower centre 10mm and gems.
I hope you like it :) 

Products are available in my shop - Love to Craft & Create


Thank so much for stopping by :)
Please let me know what you think about my tag in a comment section below :*
Have a lovely day,
M. xxx
