It's time for another Flourishes Friday Focus! It's Cindy Lawrence here, and I've got a fun product focus this week...Flower Soft.
I'm sure you've seen it around, after all Flourishes carries a lovely selection in the Flourishes store. Maybe you even have some...and maybe you aren't really sure what to do with it. Today, I have a quick tutorial for you that will hopefully give you a little inspiration, as well as some helpful tips.
What you need to get started:
- A stamped image of anything you'd like to give some soft texture to.
- A jar or two of Flower Soft - I've used the Summer mix here.
- A large container to dump your Flower Soft into. It needs room to expand!
- Flower Soft Glue - a quick-drying tacky glue with a fine tip for precision.
After you've stamped your image, you will apply Flower Soft Glue to the area to be covered in Flower Soft. If you'll be covering a large area, you may need to do it in sections to prevent it from drying out before you're ready.
Now you're ready to apply the Flower Soft to your glued image. Hold the image over the large container and sprinkle FS onto it until it is completely covered. Then, gently press the FS into the image until it is fully adhered.
Next, tap off any excess, and complete your project. How easy is that?!
I used the Pale Green Flower Soft for the grass. I just love the texture and dimension this wonderful, fuzzy stuff gives to my card! Other ideas for Flower Soft are moss, snow, fuzzy animals, flowers and flower centers, teddy bears, baby blankets, and so much more.
What is it made of, you ask? Well, that is apparently a trade secret; but what I do know is that it is acid-free, non-toxic, man-made fiber...and it has a spongy texture that springs right back when you squish it. It is virtually indestructible...really cooool stuff!
I hope you've enjoyed the tutorial, and are inspired to make some fun Flower Soft samples of your own!
