I find flock a little tough to play with. 1) It gets all over everything worse than glitter. 2) I find it hard to get it to stick evenly to a stamped image using a glue pad. But I also have several jars of it from Martha Stewart so I need to make friends with it or give it away to someone who’s more capable than I am.
I picked up this great stamp from Paper Source that looks enough like poppies that I decided to make some fuzzy poppies. I’m sharing this not so great card so don’t hold it against me. I liked the color combo but I am really not liking the flocked poppies. As I’m writing this I am inclined to get rid of my flock today. I also distress the edges with weathered wood distress ink….it just looked to harsh without it. The poppy stems are hand drawn. Lastly I used the linen impression plate to give the card base some texture. Anyway…supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.
Hope you are having a blissful day! Thanks for stopping by….
