Flowers of ice (by Miranda)



Hello lovely people,

Where I live (in the Netherlands) the weather is changing.....it's getting colder and it feels like Winter is finally coming. So to stay in the same sphere I created some flowers of ice with one of the new flower heads. I have used the Circle center flowerhead. I like all the six new flower heads and could not make a choice if I had to......so they can also be bought in a multi-buy which saves you some money and than you can play with all of them!

I had already this icy coloured background in my stash, made with fluid inks on water based paper and some salt effects. As you can see I have also used some sparkling paste through a stencil on the background.




I have stamped the flowers using Memento de Luxe in different colors for each flower. Than I have embossed them with Wow clear silver highlight embossing powder which has a lot of holographic sparkles. I coloured them with water based markers and decoupaged them.

The word Bliss is from the Artistic Affirmations sheet.

From a different angle so you can see the sparkle even better.......

I hope I have inspired you with these flowers of ice.......
Thanks for your visit and hope to see you next time!
