SCS Challenge - I

This card was created for one of the SCS Challenges where we were supposed to use Flock on a card... I thought it would be fun to use the Flock with a stamp that has a large design so I decided to go with the Baroque background stamp. It was pretty late last night, so I ended up cutting my card base with the wrong dimensions, and as a result my Baroque background ended up being sideways. LOL

Anyhoo... The Basic Black card base is 4 3/4" x 5 1/4", the Whisper White layer is 4 1/2" x 5", and the Soft Sky layer is 4 1/4" x 4 3/4". I used my Tsukineko Glue Pad with my Baroque background stamp, and gooped it up enough to give the stamped image some tackiness. For me personally, I found the best way to get good coverage with Flock is to allow the glue to set for 2-3 seconds after you pull the stamp off of the paper and add the Flock. The glue just seems a little more tacky when you let it sit for an extra moment or two.

I really like the look of Flock, but I'm not so sure how often I'll be using it going forward... This stuff is MESSY! There were about a million and one little black fibers all over the place by the time I was finished. :)

Before I assembled the layers, I used my Aqua Painter and my Soft Sky ink pad to color the two Pretties flowers I wanted to put on the card. While the flowers were drying, I went ahead and taped down my layers. Then I stamped my sentiment on Whisper White, and used my 3/4" punch. I then layered that off center on top of a 1" circle punch of Basic Black, and attached it to the flowers. Pop dots were used to attached the flowers to the card.

  1. WOW, this is great, love the flowr and that paper is fantastic, at first I thought it was background paper until I read and realized you stamped it. It is Great.

  2. This card is gorgeous. Love the black flock!

  3. Ohh...nice flocking! (oh that sounds weird...lol).

    I wouldn't have noticed it was sideways. Nice job indeed.
