Magnolia-licious DT - Foamiran Orchids

Good morning!  I'm so excited to share today's card and see what you think of it.  It's one of those cards where I've had the idea for over a year but never got around to making.  When I started making flowers with Foamiran I knew I would now be able to make the card exactly how I'd envisaged.  The pink background to the orchids was cut with the recipe card Doohickey.

The leaves were cut by hand from deep green Foamiran and veined it with my scoring tool.  I also inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink to make them look more realistic.  The roots are flower stems.

I covered the 'pot' in Crackle Accents to give a lovely effect.

I also added a little bit of florist's moss to the pot.

The orchids were made from white Foamiran using the orchid Doohickey dies.  I coloured the centres with copic markers.

For the stem of the orchid I used flower stems.

Check out the Magnolia-licious store for lots of Foamiran colours and flower centres.  I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
