A New Twist

Here is a new twist on one of my old stand-bys.  I found myself with a package of rather blah yellow lilies.  They are okay, but they just don't "pop" when made into earrings.  At least they don't for me.  I'm not much of a yellow lover to begin with.  I had one of those "what if" moments the other day.  What if I stained the tips of these with a non water based pigment?  The first couple of attempts are in the trash can, but eventually I got it to work.  It worked so well, I got out some green lilies and tried it with them too.  

This pair is purple on the green

This pair is red on yellow.  

I had fun turning plain flowers into something with a little more pizazz.  Hope you like them!
