Flower Soft has a great new product out…well actually two. But the latest product review on SCS was all about the new Flower Soft Ultra Fine. I really like the much finer new product. It makes it easier to use on more detailed stamps. The other new product is their beautiful new line of stamps called Moments in Time.
My image is from the Moments in Time stamp set called Man of the Hour. This image reminds me so much of my two boys when they were little. Kids grow up way to fast, don’t they? The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (Shirt and socks: R24, R27, R29, BG93, BG96 Ball E33, E34, E35 Shorts: E70, E71, C00 Grass: YG01, YG03, YG05 Skin: E50, E51, E53 Shoes: E44, E47 Hair: Y18, Y26, YR28, E15, E8). The image was cut out and embossed with Curved Rectangle Nestabilities. While leaving the die on, I airbrushed the sky with Copic Marker B24.
On the ground I added Flower Soft Ultra Fine Sand, for the grass I used the Flower Soft Ultra Fine Sage. The sand color was to light, so after the glue dried, I airbrushed that area with E47. The top right of the image was paper pierced.
The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Always Artichoke cardstock folded in half. A 3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″ piece of Kraft cardstock was stamped with the ball from the same set in Frayed Burlap Distress ink. The edges were sponged with the same ink. That layer was stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Chocolate chip cardstock. The stitched layers were attached to the card front with dimensionals.
The sentiment is from Verve’s Dare To Be You stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah White cardstock, punched with SU’s large oval punch and sponged with Frayed Burlap ink before it was adhered to the image.
The rubber stamps from Flower Soft come as unmounted rubber sheets along with Kling-on cushion. I created a quick tutorial on how to mounting unmounted rubber stamps. I used my Flower Soft image for the photo tutorial and a Stamp’n Whiskers image for the video tutorial that you can see here:
