Hand Made Flowers at Craft for the Craic

Hope you're all enjoying the fine weather!  For July at Craft for the Craic the challenge is to use handmade flowers on aniything but a card.  I've recently discovered Foamiran - sheets of a special foam which makes lovely petals when heated.  

I cut a tag shape from some white card and used texture paste over a Tim Holtz stencil.  I wet the card then added Worn Lipstick distress ink, watered down and picked up with a brush, letting it run down the card and over the brick effect.  I then added my flowers,a die cut, muslin, lace, pearl trim and pink pearls.  I finished with some dabs of glue before sprinkling some glitter.

How do you like to make flowers?  From Foamiran, paper, fabric, cake icing, beads, crochet?  Let us see at Craft for the Craic.
