Woo Hoo for Flower Soft




I just got great news last night - I was invited to be the guest designer for Flower Soft for July and August. This is such a cool project, and can add so much texture to your project.

The card I have to show you tonight, uses a little bit of Polar White Flower Soft for the waves crashing on the boat. It just took a tiny bit, but made such a big impact. My stamp is from By the Sea set from JustRite Stampers (love this set!) I stamped two of the images, and popped the boat and sea up to give it depth.

I used two types of ribbon to make by bow - Old gold satin edge and Old Gold Satin. I liked the contrast of the finishes of the ribbons together.

Thanks for looking and for all of the sweet comments that you leave!

Challenges:
JustRite - Let's Hear it for the boys
Cuttlebug Spot - sketch

Oh Alice - favorite technique (coloring with copics, embossing, distressing)
