Flower Soft Tutorial: Clothes

Hi everyone, I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with flower soft, or have ever used it. It's a wonderful product that can be used for a variety of crafts and can be purchased through the 7kids College Fund in a variety of colors. Besides using it on your cards as a filler for flowers in a garden or in a vase, I will be showing you how I use flower soft on the clothing of stamped images.
We begin with a stamped image, flower soft glue, and your choice of flower soft.
Apply the flower soft glue to your image, on the areas you want to add flower soft. You don't need to add a glob of glue, just enough to cover that area.
When adding flower soft to the glue, be sure to sprinkle it on with your fingers. It comes pretty well packed in the container but is easy to separate.
I have found that if you are applying flower soft to an area of clothing, you should try to contain the flower soft to that area only. I did this by pinching the flower soft. It also gives it a fuller appearance.
Here is the finished product after applying all the flower soft to the desired areas. I love the look of it because it makes it look like the softer part of the sleeve, or the hood. I also added it to her shoes.
Another look at the finished flower soft image.
I hope this tutorial was helpful for all of you whether you have used flower soft or not. If not, you have got to try this out. You will love it!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a great day!!
