Lilac Tilda

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

Have I mentioned how much I love Flower Soft?! This image of Tilda holding lilacs just called out for it. I've been battling a bad cold lately so I was happy that this card came together quickly. Flower Soft is so easy to work with and, although it's hard to tell in the photos, I put a couple layers of it on so that there is a dimension to the lilacs. All you have to do is wait until the first layer is completely dry (I always wait overnight) and then you can put more glue on top of the first layer and sprinkle more FS on. The result is a dimensional, more realistic flower.

Pez-A-Doodle Designs has a great selection of Flower Soft and Stickles, which I also used on Tilda's shoes, bow, and wings. I've provided links to her store for these items (as well as the Memento ink - my FAVORITE) below in my recipe. Be sure to check out all the items in her store because she has super fast shipping and great service. Coming soon there will be some great new embellishments that you won't be able to find anywhere else. Stay tuned!

Pez-A-Doodle will also be releasing all NEW and EXCLUSIVE stamps in April so be sure to check back here often!

Today is the first day the new PDD DT gets to strut their stuff so please make sure you visit my DT sisters. All the links are to the right.
