Fimo card accents

I was in An Siopa Bui last week doing a Fimo demonstration for Staedtlar - the weather was a total washout but we had a fun day playing with this extremely versatile polymer clay.
I was primarily using Fimo soft - a great introduction to the medium, as the name implies it is softer and easily modelled than the classic (more suited to jewellery applications - although I have made beads, brooches etc using fimo soft). It comes in a huge array of colours which are then blendable so that you can create any colour imaginable and there are glitter and metallic options. For cardmakers, Fimo makes great accents and can be coloured and mixed with many of your other craft materials - I add ultra fine glitter, paint it with acrylic paint, blend on alcohol inks, colour with chalks, distress inks and pearl-ex. When I have finished a project I squash up all the bits and then make little flowers, I then colour them with gold and silver pearl-ex and add a bit of green promarker onto the leaves. Nothing is wasted.
Anyhow, here's a couple of quick cards using fimo embellishments - I'll post the rest of fimo creations soon.



We have just discovered your gorgeous cards made with STAEDTLER FIMO!
We'd love to meet you on our facebook fanpage - it would be great if you became a fan, too, and showed your artworks to all other FIMO fans on our page.

Hope to meet you soon and best regards from STAEDTLER headquarters in Germany, Yvonne
