Flower Soft and a photo

I love to use photos that I have taken on cards and I love to experiment so that is what today's post is about.
I wondered how Flower Soft accents would work on an actual photo printed on photo paper. Guess what, it worked wonderfully!
The photo is a cluster of white roses with yellow centers. I just added a generous amount of the Tacky glue to the centers of the roses. Next, I added the Citrus Crush Ultra Fine Flower Soft on the wet glue and left that to dry thoroughly. When that was dry, I brushed off all of the excess Flower Soft and then I added a bit more glue to just the center area of a couple of these Flower Soft accented centers and added the Sunshine yellow Flower Soft and left that to dry.
If you have even use both the original Flower Soft and the Ultra Fine Flower Soft, you know that the original kind has larger little flakes then the Ultra Fine so they really worked together nicely for the centers of my flowers.
Here is a side view. If you look real hard, you can see that they are two different levels of Flower Soft with the two kinds that I used.

Here is another view of a close up of the centers to help you get the idea. I thought my experiment worked out pretty good for a fun accent to a card and to a photo.
And, here is a little reminder, be on the lookout for what is soon to come with Flower Soft TV, you are going to LOVE it!

  2. Wow, this is great. It makes those flowers pop right out of the photo.

  3. Nice job as always. I really like the idea of using a real photo on your card. I'll have to work on doing one myself. I've got the photo in mind already.
