Flower Soft - Summer Wheelbarrow



This is the second image in the series of three from the Flower Soft Wheelbarrow Set, that I've had a chance to work with. I started out by stamping the images in Black Archival on Watercolor paper. (On this sample I actually stamped on the back side of the WC paper, as I wanted a bit of a softer look). I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get proper placement of the flower images into my wheelbarrow. I just love the SAMJ for things like that and figuring out where's the best place to put a sentiment on my card before I actually stamp it. Do you use a SAMJ when you stamp?

There's a method to my madness, when I create. Just in case the Flower Soft didn't adhere in all the places I had wanted it to when I applied the PVA Glue, I did color my images using the Marker Watercoloring Technique, before I added my Flower Soft. When I create my Altered Project in yesterday's post - this was the image I was going to use, but couldn't find a frame to put it in. I think it would look pretty in a frame too, putting it under the glass, reminds me of pressed flowers.

I think this is the best card I have seen using the flower soft. I think coloring first helps but I also think the use of colors adds a very vibrant touch. Thanks for sharing this and the hint...now maybe I will have to get some.

I went right to their site and ordered the wheelbarrow set and two types of flower soft. This stuff rocks, but it does take a little practice to get the quality that you have achieved - you rock!! I'm going to make one this weekend and I'll post a link for you. Thanks for your tips and for sharing your artistic talent.
