Flower Soft and Impression-Obsession stamps BLOG HOP


Yeah, a blog hop! What a fun way to share a whole ton of goodness.  Today's blog hop is with the Flower Soft Design Team and the Impression-Obsession stamps Design Team


As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 4 prize winners chosen randomly among the blogs.                          


Two $25 gift certificates from Flower Soft and two $25 gift certificates from Impression Obsession!!!

The prize winners will be announced on the Flower Soft Blog and The Impression Obsession blog on Wednesday August 18th.

If you didn’t start at the beginning of the hop please go to the beginning at the Flower Soft Blog.

I have already mentioned a few times how much fun it is to use Flower Soft on a project and today I am going to use some Ultra Fine Flower Soft with a super cute stamp from Impression-Obsession.The stamp I used is from a set called "Refreshments". Every stamp in this set is just beyond CUTE and fun to use.  My card also fits the Little Red Wagon challenge to create something with a SUMMER theme.

After I colored my image with Copic markers, I applied the Tacky Glue and then added the Citrus Crush Ultra Fine Flower Soft to my lemon slices.  I only added the Flower Soft to portions of the lemon slices.  I knew that if I completely covered them, that would hide the little images.  By just accenting portions of the image, you can still see what the image is plus get the neat effect of the Flower Soft.


On the Strawberry and on the little umbrellas, I added some Strawberry Ultra Fine Flower Soft.  Again, I didn't cover the entire image so that you could see the Flower Soft and still see the image. 
From my blog, be sure to progress onto the next blog in the hop, Kathy Menzies
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
