Flower soft Tilda

Hello again! I hope your Monday is going well!! I don't seem to be getting a whole lot done...I seem to be bouncing back & forth between stamping & farming (if you're on Facebook you will know what I am talking about, lol). I did get a ton of Xmas bins upstairs....I didn't take anything out yet....but getting them out of storage is the hardest part!

I received my latest order from 7 Kids College Fund on Saturday, & one of the things I ordered was the Vintage Christmas Flower Soft. I am a Flower Soft virgin. Well, I WAS ....until this card.....



I knew when I ordered it that I was going to use it with this Tilda.....Tilda with Flowers....from the Chasing Butterflies collection. I was surprised by the texture....it's kind of plastic-y....I was expecting it to be...well, SOFTER. But I do like the effect. Definitely different.

Tilda is colored with Prismas & gamsol & cut out....the sentiment is from Hero Arts.....& the papers are K&Company Christmas Cheer. I kept it quite simple, but I did have to add the 4 gold baubles in the corners.



I don't know if I'm going to sell this card or not.....not quite sure how Flower Soft travels, lol. I may have to mail it to myself to see how it holds up :)





All in all I do like it & let's be honest.....I will have to get ALL the colors. Flower Soft comes in single colors, mixed colors, & even boxed collections. You can check them out HERE ....

Enoy the rest of the day.....I'm off to do something productive.......really I am......

Love your card! I was really interested in your opinion on the Flower Soft as I want to try it to. It looks like it would be soft.

Michelle, I am so glad to see someone else who loves their prismacolors. Your image turned out just beautifully. If you like this flower soft you need to try the polar white for snow. It is just gorgeous.
I always have enjoyed your cards Michelle. They are always stunning!

I LOOOOOOVE to see people use Tilda's meant for one thing in a different way!! This is WONDERFUL! Flower soft is a little phenom. The texture surprised me at first too! I am always wishing I had it another color...but never remember to use it! LOL!

It's too good! Already a PRO. Wow! Have fun with these mini-flowers. Your card is really beautiful.

Eulanda said...

I'm not sure if it's just me but I kinda felt like the white Flower Soft is softer then the other colors. Either that or I'm spending too much time in my craft room. LOL!! Your care is beautiful and your coloring is amazing!

Sheila said...

A beautiful card, Michelle. I love the papers and colors. I've never seen the flower soft before - it looks cool - a definite addition for my wish list.
