Where else can you put Flower Soft?

Yes, on paper is a great choice but it is fun to see what other kinds of things can be enhanced with an accent of Flower Soft, whether it is for a card, a scrapbook layout or some other craft project. The Flower Soft design team is hosting a focus on unusual ways to use Flower Soft. I used the Unscripted sketches #51 for my inspiration.
I pulled out one of my Prima silk flowers. I love to use silk flowers on cards and adding to this one with some Ultra Fine Flower Soft in Raspberry Fizz was a really fun and successful experiment. All I was to use my Aleene's Tacky Glue and apply some of that to my flower. I didn't coat all of the flower, I wanted to put the focus on the middle of the flower and then out into the middles of each petal. Again, remember to use this particular glue for the best results and remember to be generous on how much glue you use.
The sketch for Unscripted Sketches gives the impression of torn paper but instead I used a piece of this lace paper to go across my card. The background cardstock behind the lace piece is BRAND NEW from Core'dinations, the collection is called Core Amour. This collection comes with embossed designs in it, the impressions are discovered when you sand the cardstock.
This close-up gives you a great glimpse of how the Ultra Fine Flower Soft looks in the middle of the flower.
My card base is a piece of Black Magic Core'dinations. The beauty of this collection is it is black on the front side and a color on the backside. I used a piece with pink on the backside so that it brought out the pink flower on the front. PLUS, when I sanded the edges of the card, the pink core was exposed making it all match even more.
Be sure to check out the other team members blogs for more inspiration.
