Scrapbookpal.com is one of my most favorite retailers on the Internet. I LUV the Cats Eye Fluid Chalk ink pads - they are so perfect for edging and getting in small places. Scrapbookpal sells them for $1.65 each, have EVERY color (regular and metallic), and FREE shipping with a minimum $25 order!
My daughter recently ordered the flocking assortment for me, and I have been trying it out. I used it on the butterfly on the front of this card.
I stamped the butterfly image with black ink on Bazzill white cardstock. I filled in the small shapes with my Zig glue pen, and sprinkled blue flocking over the glue. Next I traced the outline of the image with my Zig pen and sprinkled purple flocking over the outline. I used Tiara Stickles (from Scrapbookpal) on the butterfly's antennae. After the Stickles dried, I applied Zig glue to the white areas of the butterfly's wings and misted with white Perfect Pearls. I used an art brush to lightly dust the Pearls over the flocking, resulting in a beautiful, soft effect. I tried to photograph how pretty the finished butterfly is in real life, but I just couldn't capture it. One thing I will do differently next time I use Flock and Perfect Pearls together - I will apply the Perfect Pearls first, the flocking next, then a very light dusting of the Perfect Pearls over the entire image as a last, finishing touch.
