flower-soft lilacs

Life has been busy because school starts back up here in another week. I had a fun package arrive in the mail today though, and I just had to put some of the contents to use.

This is a card that I creatively Cuttled using the new A2 Floral Screen Cuttlebug embossing folder. I did this in order to leave that unembossed area for my new lilac stamp from Flourishes. I stamped the image using Memento dye ink, then colored with Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with the Goo Gone Mess-free pen. But here's the really fun part! I then applied some glue to the lilacs and pressed Flower Soft into the glue. They're acid-free sprinkles that add really neat color and texture. Using it is much like using flock. The colors and color combinations are wonderful!

This is a close-up of the flower soft sprinkles. The sentiment is also by Flourishes, by the way. I can't wait to try using these Flower Soft sprinkles on some other projects!
