The photo does not do it justice. I sponged the mountains, clouds and sun to create a background. Here are a few photos to give you a better idea. I added my pop dots to the pieces prior to removing them from the sheet. I found this to be a much easier method. Then I only had to focus on the front and lifting out the correct number.
I used my tweezers to help me get the alignment right. I found these to be invaluable. The other photos are close-ups once I added the flower soft.
I started with the polar white and worked my way from light to dark colors.
I wanted to use liquid applique on the mountain tops, but mine had turned to a creamy latte color.
Maybe I can save it for my coffee stamps. This is totally off topic, but I love coffee. Black and Hot. Ok, back to the task at hand.
My dots are VERY low profile. I used some from American Crafts that I picked up at Tuesday Morning.
The card was folded to create a diorama type frame using my Scor-Pal. The quote is attached to a piece of acetate that covers the entire scene. This way I can display it and not have to worry about little fingers trying to remove the Flower Soft. I edged the side panels in the silver Peel Offs.
Since there is depth to the background it gives the appearance of a diorama with added dimension from the decoupage pieces. Here is a different view.
Hope you will experiment and play around with Flower Soft. I am sure they will be adding additional products to their line. Just ask Kim at http://www.cutterscreek.com/
Thanks for joining me on the Flower Soft Retreat---mmmm.....we could do a world cruise on another product? See how I get carried away? Before I forget, prior to adhering my pieces I used my Sakura glaze and metallic pens on portions of the images. It comes across in person, trust me.
Keep creating and inking in the name of love.
