Prima Flowers, , Copics, Bic Mark-its, Dimensional Pearls, and oyster baubles (Stampingbella)
1. Use a coffee filter as a mat, just make sure you change filters when you change colors in order not to mix.
2. When you open the pot, do it over the coffee filter and loosen up the flakes so that it's easier to work with.
3. Don't squeeze the flakes together or it will clump. I found that if I roll the flakes between my forefinger and thumb as I sprinkle over the glue (you will get a more even application).
5. Apply your darker colors first, this will had depth to your "image" by layering in shades.
Another great thing I've read but haven't tried yet is adding glitter to the flower soft. The glitter is a heavier "material" and will settle in between the flower soft flakes and will give that added sparkle that you are looking for.

Need to spread liquid adhesive quickly over a large surface area?
Instead of dumping those phony plastic credit cards you receive in the mail, save them! You can simply use the wasted plastic cards as glue-spreaders! Use the plastic card to swipe and spread the liquid glue into a thin, even layer of glue over a big surface area. What's more? You can just wipe the card clean and reuse them again and again.

Supplies (CTMH unless otherwise noted)
Black and Orange ribbon (Michaels/Joann's)
To minimize ink staining, first ink your stamp with a neutral color such as Bamboo, then ink in your intended color. The pre-stamping in Bamboo helps reduce permanent staining.
Remember that even though they are stained, this will not affect any future stamping, and stained stamps are just a sign of a well loved stamp :)
I am going to list the participants that has joined in so far and will be adding to it daily. .
Just click on a their link on the sidebar under the blogtoberfest list and check back daily as they will be adding stuff for you to learn.
