Orange is the new white - foamiran flower

I guess I am like one of those shoemakers - never with my own shoes :-) I had barely a chance of taking photos of the orange poppy flower, before it was handed over as a gift.

For this flower, I followed my own "recipe". All petals are hand cut and slightly distressed on the edges. I dared to use rather bright orange colour and I think the flower turned out to be rather vibrant and summerish.

For the middle, I used grey foamiran, distressed with black ink pad. I applied glue randomly and dipped into the embossing powder. If I were a bee, I would definitely pick this flower :-)

Most of the leaves are hand cut and embossed. However, for the big ones I used lovely LadyE die "Flower 6", poppy. They are glued onto a metal wire for giving them a different shape and flexibility.

I think foamiran flowers are phenomenal, and can be used as hair clips, a brooch on a sun hat, and even shoe embellishment, don't you think?
