Foamiran Explosion Box

Last year Pion Design came out with a very interesting collection called "The Witching Hour".  Of course I LOVED it but I know some of you don't celebrate Halloween so I wanted to share how you could use some of these most amazing papers for an everyday project.  I think that the black accents in this collection are also perfect for masculine cards so I love having them in my personal store.  😁😁

I decided to create an explosion box to get a chance to feature the papers and some handmade flowers.  This is a picture heavy post so I hope you enjoy!

I've used apple white Foamiran and inked them with a TH ink cube and some daubers.   OH MY is this ever messy when you twist them but sooooo worth it!  I made the bigger flowers using Whimsy's peony die and die cut the leaves from the leaf die that comes with that set. 

I've added a bow using some wax cord from Prima, which is available in the store in a great selection of various colors.  There are some black and cream colored stamens  in the centers but the bigger black ones are ball and rose shaped bases (see product list below) which aren't in stock right now but are coming.  In order to make them black, I actually dipped them right into a bottle of black distress ink and then let them dry.

Here is a flower I made using Whimsy's lily die, which also has some pieces in it for making a poinsettia.  What a great set to have in your stash!  I added some vintage cream stamens and covered the ends with gold Stickles.

BAM!!!  And here's the center of the box!!!  Ooooooooo so much to look at!

I used a couple of chipboard pieces from Wycinanka and a bronze butterfly and owl.  I even took a die cut from Joy's Circle Floral Hexagon die and cut it in 4 to fit over some of the corners.

I distressed the edges of a Scrapiniec butterfly, cut out a Pion butterfly and added a nib to the top as part of the main feature. 

Here are more Foamiran flowers but this time I used Rosy Owl "Flower Dies 1" and again added a mixture of stamens.  Under the flowers I added some metal leaves for a bit more gold.

Ok so my latest that took me HOURS to finish!  LOL!!
