Personalize with Flower Soft

Welcome to the Flower Soft Challenge: our challenge today was to "write" with Flower Soft!

Did you know that you can personalize projects with Ultra Fine Flower Soft? I've designed this card for my niece, Audrey, using her initials, favorite color, and love of kittens.

The decorator paper used for this project is from Cosmo Cricket's 6 X 6" Mini Deck, "Early Bird." What a cheerful grouping of paper patterns!

I used Aleene's Original Tacky Glue, straight from the bottle, to hand write Audrey's initials...I then covered the glue with Strawberry Ultra Fine Flower Soft. It takes a bit of practice to achieve an even flow--I was tempted to pull out chipboard letters to cover with the Ultra Fine (it works marvelously on chipboard...see here), but stuck to the challenge that was presented.

The cute kitten image is from Flower Soft's new Moments In Time line, "Purr-fect." I stamped the kitty with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored her with Copic markers.

Be sure to visit the rest of the Flower Soft team to see what they have come up with!
