Fairies triptych

Hi, DT Henriette here today sharing a decorated triptych with chipboard fairies and lots of foamiran flowers.

I had this triptych in my stash for some time now and I decided to decorate it with the sweet chipboard faires from the 14 craft bar shop.
The wings of the fairies I painted using metalic paints (green and purple) and added glitter to them.
The bodies of the fairies I colored black with a marker.

I painted the panels of the triptych with white gesso and covered them with patterned papers (Kaisercraft).
Then I made the flowers. I used different kinds of dies to cut out the shapes. In the supply list below are links to all the flower dies I have used.

With a shaping tool I shaped the flowers by pressing the warm foamiran in a sponge.
I used stamens and flower centers in matching colors.

With a hot glue gun I glued all the pieces to the panels and added lots of paper leaves and berry branches. Finally I added glitter powder on the panels as a kind of fairy dust and tied the panels together with ribbons.

As this is my last post for 14 craft bar, I want to say thanks to Agnieszka and Emilia for giving me the opportunity to be part of this team! It was a wonderful experience and I loved making cards, flowers and other projects with the fantastic 14 craft bar products.
I wish everyone all the best and we will be seeing each other on social media for sure. 😘

Hugs,  Henriette.

My Latest Display with Foamiran Flowers

Hi guys, I want today to show you a collection of flowers I've made as a display using some of the fabulous Foamiran from Agnes at 14 Craft Bar,

I've made quite a few flowers using the same  multi flower die, just using different sized petals and gluing them in a different way too, this means one die set can give lots of beautiful flowers for the cost of one die set,

I used 0002 Ecru Foamiran as the base of most of my flowers, then I simply coloured the petals with some oil pastels, for this flower I used a die from my stash, after cutting out the petals I scrunched the petals up after colouring with the oil pastels and then spread them in the middle of the petals leaving the tops scrunched up as much as I could, Foe this flower I also used some stamens,

This flower was made using the multi flower die using the next to largest sized petal and again some of the stamens, I also coloured the edges of the petals with some oil pastel but in a lighter colourway this time,

This small rose bud style flower has Ecru foamiran on the outer petals with some Apricot Silk Foam for the inner ones, again the multi flower die was used for these,( please excuse my glue strings, they always show more under the lamp I use to photograph my images with) these can be easily removed of course!!!! LOL, I then used some Olive Green foamiran for the leaves just colouring the edges with another oil pastel too,

Again I made this flower out of the Multi flower die, colouring the edges of the outer petals the same way and using some of the Apricot Silk foam for the centres,

Here is another of the style of flower I showed above,

Here I used the Multi flower die using the 3rd sized petal up for a Rose Bud styled flower again using the Apricot Silk foam and Olive Green for the leaves,

This open curly rose styled flower was made using pale peach Foamiran for the outer petals coloured with the paler oil pastel as used before for another flower, then I used the Ecru Foamiran onto which I added no extra colour for the centre petals, 

I used the Rosy Dot die AC2  and the pale peach Foamiran for the small flower bunch , these I coloured with the oil pastels and added a tiny button from my stash for the centres, this style of flower bunch makes a great filler for the display as shown,

This is the finished top view of my flower display, where you can see most of the different types of flowers I made,

As you can see I arranged the flowers with some larger hand cut leaves and more rose buds, 

 Hope you have a go at the different styled flowers that you can make with the fabulous range of Foamiran, stamens, dies and stencils plus lots of other products over at 14 Craft Bar too,
Happy Crafting!!!

Hugs Liz xx
