they look lovely!
I pressed forget-me-nots from my garden and used them on white tips sandwiched within CND clear...after about 2-3 weeks the flowers really lost their colour...turned from the lovely blue to a sort of wishy washy grey. How long have these been done ruth? Any ideas why the colour drained from them? Despite the colour disappearing it didn't seem to go anywhere - no discoloured acrylics.

I did these today................
UV light as in sunlight will fade the colours over time.........the uv light in daylight bleaches the colour out of them...............try using a UV topcoat , this should make the colours last........................UV30 from EZFlow is on mine, so will see how that holds out....................

Wow Ruth they are really fab. I'm doing a course in the Wrapture Gel for fibreglass in August so i will be able to do this as well hopefully.

Plus i have ordered some shell wrap from NSI which i thought would be good to use with Fibreglass as well, so i hope mine come out okay. I will post a pic on here when i've done some.

You can set the flowers in any system.......it works well with all systems.......Gel, L&P or Fibreglass..............Fibreglass is so easy...........

Here is how I do the fabric# Flower Art
1. finish all your fibreglass application, so the sruface is very smooth and even.
2. adhere flower to the nail with a little bit of bond.
3. when dry, brush over a coat of bond and let it air dry
4. apply 2 x boost, buff smooth and then varnish with a uv top coat like UV30...........this preseves the colour....
5. Use a shiney top coat like lol. CND Shiney or any other very glossy coat to bring out the colours........
