Flower Soft Sprinkle Challenge: Furry Friends

This week's Flower Soft Sprinkle challenge over at the Splitcoaststampers Forum (FSC25) is to use Flower Soft on your projects that feature animals. We'd love to have you join us, wherever that theme takes your imagination......remember you can win a prize for participating!

I dug through some older stamps to find one I hadn't used for a while, and came up with this Orangutan from Biblical Impressions - how fun is he? Not everyone can say they have an Orangutan stamp in their collection, y'know... I watercolored the image using Derwent Inktense and watercolor pencils, and reinkers, and added some dimension to his face with a stylus from behind the panel.

I had a lot of fun filling him in with Ultrafine Flower Soft - I used Earth, Burnt Sienna, Toffee, and Sand. He's super fuzzy! The sentiment I used is from smARTworks.

If you'd like to join in on the challenge, pull out the Flower Soft - you might even win a prize! Post your animal project in the Splitcoast Gallery using the keywords flowersoft (one word) and FSC25. We'd love to have you join us!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Love this Miss Dina! So comical, just made me smile. Love how you used the flower soft for his fuzzy fur too. 8-)

  3. Love it!! I didn't even know anyone made an orangutan stamp! It's the perfect stamp and sentiment for males, females, kids.

  4. He looks so realistic! Great coloring job.

  5. Amazing. I didn't every imagine that flower soft could appear so multi-dimensional because of the different array of colors in the "fur". Wowzee!!!

  6. OMGoodness, love your sweet, fuzzy Orangutan, Dina!!
