Fun Flock

I was really excited to make this card using Fun Flock and Pig Time, a stamp by Inkadinkado.

I first stamped my image using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Worn Lipstick. This gave my pig a perfect pink outline. To get the pink background behind the image, I dipped my Cut N Dry Foam into the distress ink and just dabbed it onto the paper.

I then took my Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive and put it into the center of the image. Next, I pinched some flock out of my Pixie Pink flock jar by Stampendous & pressed it into the glue. I found that the flock was very forgiving & allowed me to mold it into the shape of my image. I then added two googly eyes to the pig & gave him a pink button nose. Finally, I accented the pig using Cotton Candy Stickles.

I have tried using all different kinds of adhesives with the flock, but I prefer to use the Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive when working with this. My second favorite glue to use with the flock was my Two Way Glue Pen. Although a taperunner worked to adhere the flock, I thought I had better results using the other two glues.

Finally, I always think that flocking looks better in person than it does in pictures. It's one of those things where you just have to see & feel it to really appreciate it. I hope you enjoyed my short tutorial.

Thanks for looking,
