3D Amaryllis Flowers And Pitcher

Hello all my Crafty friends!
I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends. 
This is the flower arrangement that I made for my daughter and she LOVED it!

I used the Coral Couture paper stack for both the flowers and pitcher. 
First I cut the whole pitcher out in the light cream that you see on the top and bottom rims. Then I placed the accents pieces on the mat so I would get the front of the bird to line up.
You can see the tutorial here

Love the gold bird paper!

My paper wasn't double sided so I glued two petal together which made them look and feel more real.

I doubled all the petals and inked them with distressed Tim Holtz inks.

This Amaryllis matches my ribbon accent.

For this flower I only had three of each color left so I made a mixed flower. 
I think it turned out nicely.

I thought some greenery would be nice, so I made my own leaves for my arrangement. I didn't have the dowel for the stems so I used clear hard plastic balloon sticks and they worked out fine.
I also added round colored glass and used a green block of oasis in the bottom of the pitcher, to hold the flowers and leaves in place and add some weight.

 My daughter and I went up to Moskatels craft store in LA, while I was visiting her. Wow, what a large assortment of crafty things! I found this really pretty ribbon that matched one of my flowers and some other ribbon, bells, etc. My daughter bought little birds and berries for her tree. 
We had a terrific day!

This set of leaves are single paper and inked, but seem to flop around instead of standing straight.
The next set of leaves I make will be doubled with wire in between so I can adjust them.

That's it for today my friends!
Have a wonderful weekend and keep checking back for new and exciting creations.
