I recently discovered a new and REALLY cool embellishment called "Flower Soft". It's been around for a while, but it's new to me. It adds almost a "realistic" dimension to images. I had received this stamp from a friend and for a while, I was struggling with how to use it creatively. When I saw "Flower Soft", I thought I'd give it a try with this stamp. Here's the card:
Here's how I did it:
I stamped with image with black ink onto white cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. Then the image was cut out. I applied Glossy Accents to the bottles to give it the shine and let it dry. One the Glossy Accents was dry, I applied Flower Soft to the flowers. I actually had to create my own colors of Flower Soft, because I have a very limited supply. It was very easy to do though. I just put a little bit of Ivory Flower Soft into a ziplock bag, added some alcohol ink and "rubbed it in" to get the colors I wanted.
The background is embossed white cardstock. I colored it with Antique Linen Distress Ink, but it ended up being a little more color than I wanted. So I "whitewashed" it with Picket Fence Distress Stain. The stamped image was adhered to the background with 3D foam squares for added dimension. Then, it was all adhered to black cardstock. I really love the look of the Flower Soft!!!
Thanks for looking!!!
