Soft Baja Crumbs

These colors are from last week's Color Challenge on SCS, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze & Crumb Cake.  Dessert was to use something glossy, glittery or flower soft.

Here's what I came up with.....

When I used my "Whacked Embossing Folder" on the side, I had it backwards so I have a debossed look rather than embossed.  I really liked the look of  it better in this case, so I kept it.

I rubbed a couple of styrofoam balls together over a plastic sandwich bag then added a couple drops of Soft Suede re-inker to it and mashed it together.  It gives a real nice "bumpy" look to the center of the flower.

I sponged the edges a bit with Crumb Cake to soften the edges.  Ususally I like a crisp look but sometimes it makes life more interesting to do something different.

You made your own Flower Soft? Or, rather, Flower Crunchy? Good for you! I like your ingenuity AND your card!
