|I have always enjoyed incorporating Flower Soft on my cards & in my projects. Typically I love to use the Ultra Fine Flower Soft as I did today in both of my cards. |
My cards can get fairly detailed so I have a more simple version of my first card below this one.
|I used this glue pen to add the blue flower soft on the lines of my flower. Flower Soft was also used on the mound of dirt in the "planter"& the flowers center.|
For the background I used this stamp with this Memento ink & distressed the background after stamping using Tumbled Glass. The flower pot is from Spellbinders & I find myself using this die a lot. The flower & leaves were colored with Copic markers then I added some distress ink on the leaves to enhance my coloring.
|I had to finish off the inside to carry the rest of the sentiment message.|
|This is a simpler card that is just one layer. I did stamp the flower center & leaves an extra time to cut & color with distress ink. |
Now it's time to hop to Jeanne Streiff's beautiful and creative blog.
