Flower Soft Tutorial as seen in the Magnolia Ink, Vol. 1

Magnolia Flower Soft Tutorial                           



Supplies needed:

                Stamped & Colored Image                           Flower Soft Christmas Green & Shamrock Green

                Bowl for Mixing Flower Soft                        Flower Soft Glue or very thick, fast-drying Glue


Step 1:    I wanted my Flower Soft to be a mixture of a dark green and a light green. For my first step, I poured portions of each color into a mixing bowl.




Step 2:   I then thoroughly mixed the colors together until I reached the desired color.  



Step 3:  Carefully apply glue to areas you would like to add the Flower Soft.



Step 4:  Pour mixed Flower Soft onto the glued areas, be sure to not let the glue set for too long without applying the Flower Soft, as it dries very quickly.  It’s okay if the Flower Soft covers other areas since it will be tapped off and only stick to the glued areas.  Using a spoon or other flat utensil, gently pat the Flower Soft onto the glued areas.



Step 5:   After allowing the Flower Soft to set for a minute, gently tap the excess back into your mixing bowl.  Remaining Flower Soft can always be re-used since the glue is thicker and does not mix with the excess Flower Soft.



That’s it!!    Pretty easy.   🙂



Here’s my finished card:
