Hello and welcome to the Monday, Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Challenge. Today, I'm encouraging you to try flower soft. I had such a great time making this card and the flower soft just brings all the flowers to life. I especially love the new fine flower soft, the red. The light green is the original. I just layed down a little white craft glue that dries clear and then put the flower soft down and pressed down on it and shook off the excess.
I purchased a set containing really pastel colors, then a couple of individual pots including the red. The green that I used is really light, and I was wishing I had a darker green so I could have done the hanging pots on the porch. Probably could have tinted the lighter green with some alcohol ink, will have to try that next time!!!

The stamped image is by Impression Obsession. The designer paper is Graphic 45. I used Vintage Photo distress ink to ink around the oval. The flowers were made with a Sizzix Bigz die, Flowers and Vines #3. Used Kaiser Pearls for the flowers.
Get a couple of individual pots of this stuff and try it. Lots of possibilities. The new finer stuff is the best. Could be used for fur on animals, birds, the white sparkly would be great for winter scenes.
Thanks for stopping by. Until later.............
