Tutorial: Layering Flower Soft

Below are some photos of the process of creating this card, which uses several colors of Flower Soft on the focal panel... hopefully it will give you some help and ideas for mixing and layering Flower Soft on your projects! This image is from the Country Village Download.
Those are the steps I used!

Some tips:

--If you only have one shade of green, that would work just as well. Additional shades add to the depth of the scene, but if you have lighter colors, you can actually shade the Flower Soft **after the glue is dry** using alcohol markers.

--In the last step, I added Sand Flower Soft to the whole scene. This isn't really necessary... but I think it adds a bit of highlight and also gives a more vintage look. If you only have bright colors to work with, mixing them with Sand will give the area a lighter appearance.

If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here!

  5. Hi! Thank you for showing step-by-step how to layer the colors and come up with such fabulous shading!

    aci S. said...What gorgeous and very different cards! I wonder how you made the pearls look clear? They look great! I love anything purple. I would really love some hint of violet glitter frosting! I don't have anything like it...this would be a way for me to try it out...and get some experience with this product...and maybe some other Flower Soft products. Thanks for the opportunity to possibly be drawn.
