National Craft Month DAY 16

This morning, I felt the nice cool air outside on my way to work.  It wasn't freezing cold.  Then around noon, I heard a bunch of birds chirping all at the same time from a tall tree in front of our house.  I guess, that's the sign of Spring.  This inspired me to make a card about Spring.


For the 16th day, I wanted to play with Flower Soft.  I purchased it sometime in December, and I've never really gotten around to trying it out.  I have seen wonderful cards using Flower Soft as an embellishment, and that made me decide to buy a few pots.  The funny thing is, the color that I used for this project is the exact same pot that is on their website's front page.

For this card, I used the following supplies:
  • Georgia Pacific Cardstock
  • Spring image and Tree branch image by Autumn Leaves
  • Bird image by Verve
  • Spica AtYou glitter pen
  • Flower Soft in Sweet Pea
  • Aleene's High Tack PVA Glue
  • Fiskars Heritage corner punch
  • Copic markers
  • Misc:  leftover bg paper

I find it easy to apply Flower Soft and I think that Aleene's High Tack PVA Glue helped a lot.  It didn't take that long to dry, and Flower Soft stuck really well.  I always like dimension in my work, and Flower Soft gave my card a totally different look.  It looked like flowers about ready to come out in time for Spring.
