Faux Flower Soft

Here is the second card we made at our unit meeting this past weekend. We used the CTMH stamp set "Treasure Life" for the flower image. To add a little extra something to our cards, we made homemade Flower Soft (See the second photo for a close-up image. Click on the photo for a better look!). Flower Soft is a product you can buy on the market that is a pot of colored sprinkles that allows you to create text, designs and miniature floral embellishments. It’s acid free and is loved by card makers and scrapbookers alike, but it can be rather expensive. This weekend we learned how to make our own Flower Soft using styrofoam, rubbing alcohol, and CTMH reinkers. It's super easy and adds a great effect to cards!

This is so cool! It looks just like the real stuff. I think I need to be adopted by your unit for meetings! :)
