floating teacup



One of my blogging buddies calls me the 'frustrated florist', 
I have always loved flowers but was never a florist,
just a registered nurse. This is dedicated for you my friend, Maxine...
[thanks you for the goodies in the mail..♥]

A different kind of 'play' the last few days, making more
flowers and designing my floating teacup.
This does take a bit of pre planning to get the flowers sit
right before hot glueing them onto the saucer.
You also need to weigh down the saucer, I used pebbles from
around my water feature, then hot glued them down.



I have used flowers I made from Foamiran
and several white roses from I am Roses [R21-15 bag]
and a few bits n pieces from my stash.
Die cut butterflies added.
The ytube I used to follow this technique is below......
in case you may like to try it out...

Challenge:

I am Roses....a/g + using at least two of their flowers

Wow, this is fantastic Annie, I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time. But as the only china cups and saucers that I have belonged to my grandmother, I've not had the heart to use them. Think I'll have to start looking at boot sales.

Carol S. said...

Annie!!! What do you mean 'Just a nurse'!!!! That is one of the most important jobs you could do. I did a similar thing with a small teapot and butterflies. I used a bent fork to attach the butterflies to. Great fun to do. Your creation is stunning and the flowers are so pretty. Big hugs, Carol S.xxxx

Maxine D said...

Thank you dear friend for your shout out - and you were never "just a nurse" anyone who nurses has my greatest respect - it is all hard work and (proportionally) little reward!!
Love your wee froggie amidst those fabulous flowers - what a gorgeous creation.
Blessings
Maxine
