Flower Soft DT Challenge: Fall Fun

The Flower Soft team is hopping today... You'll want to start from the Flower Soft Blog to make sure you don't miss a thing...because prizes are involved!! if you arrived here from Linda's blog, you're on the right track.

Today we're sharing a project with a Fall theme. If you'd like to join in on the challenge, pull out the Flower Soft ---------- we'd love to have you join us! One prize package will be given away on the blog hop and another will be chosen among people who make a card using Flower Soft and post it in the Splitcoast Gallery using the keyword FSC03.

I used a stamp from smARTworks as my focal image - this is actually from a Mother's Day set, so I hadn't considered using it as a Fall image before. It works though, and I love it! The Flower Soft I used in the trees is actually the Heather Mix, dyed with a couple drops of Terra Cotta ink from Ranger. The image is watercolored with a combination of reinkers/Shimmerz and Derwent Watercolor pencils. I used a brown blow-pen (does anyone remember those?!) to add some speckles to the sky and edges. I looove all these rich browns, and that peachy-pink sky.......

For the background, I used a Cover-a-Card stamp (Kaleidoscope) from Impression Obsession, stamped in Terra Cotta and Espresso inks with lots of misting in between. The edges are sponged with Espresso as well, and stamped with a large Flourish.

As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post! There will be a prize winner chosen randomly among the blogs. The prizes are (one set for Splitcoast players and one set for the blog hop!) :

Moments in Time Stamp set Little Friend
Polar White
Ultra Fine Strawberry Flower Soft
Flower Soft Glue

You'll be hopping on to Cibele Glazer's blog, Flower Foot Designs, next. I'm glad you stopped by!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. Hello;

    I'm trying to participate in the blog hop and here I see another participant that use ink instead of glue for the flower soft?

    I have to investigate more what I should use... I was told to buy GLUE but I think I have seen several of you using INK to stick the flower-soft??
