The road to a friend’s house is never long.”

cottage home flower soft cardI’ve always loved that quote and am so happy we were able to include it in this new set Cottage Home, designed by Lauren Pope.  The set includes two main images (the smaller shown here) and several sentiments and you will want to break out your Flower Soft because this is the perfect  stamp set for it!

Want a chance to win this set?  Read on to the end of this post for all the details!

I normally don’t use orange colors, but the Autum Flower Soft color just seemed to be calling out to be used and when everything was said and done I am happy with how it turned out.

I stamped the image on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock (which was also used for the cuttlebugged embossed background)  in Palette Ink – Noir.  The copic collections in Spring Green, Sky, and Flesh Tones 2  were used to color.  Flower Soft Autumn was applied last.

The sky color was  my first attempt at airbrushing using the copic airbrush system and a small air compressor.    If you are on the fence about getting an air compressor, or just want some basic information, watch the video below.  On it I describe the basic working parts of the compressor, the copic airbrush system and show how I colored the sky.  I hope you find it helpful!

    I love your card and your blog is wonderful. I have got to go look at your air brush tutorial. See your over at Copic Buzz.

    Your video on copic airbrush systems was very helpful. I have been interested in them for a while, but have 14 copic markers so far and want to build up my collection of colors first.

    My only question is – What is Flower Soft? Is it some sort of flocking or shredded felt?
    Can any one explain this to me? Thanks!
