365 Cards - Challenge 188

It's Touchy-Feely Friday over at 365 Cards! What does that mean? The specific challenge is to use felt or flocking on your card.

I chose the flocking... and kept it simple by using DCWV's La Creme Stack! Delish neutral palette with classic patterns and texture... Of course, I had to add a bit of colour and sparkle for my Gorjuss little fairy...

Design Paper - Die Cuts With a View "La Creme"; Image - Sugar Nellie; Chipboard Sentiment - Dollar Store; Ribbon - Michael's; Rose Stickles & CTMH Watercolour Pencils.




OK, it's late... I'm snoozy, but only because I couldn't resist staying up late to get an early start on Friday's challenge AND to play with my new Artistic Outpost stamps. I want to play some more, but I do have to work tomorrow, so this quickie post and it's 'hit the hay' time!

This one's not for a challenge...it's just for fun.

Cardstock -CTMH; BG Stamp - Stamper's Anonymous Tim Holtz; BG Ink - Versamark; Designer Paper - Basic Grey; Ribbon - Rusty Pickle; Flower - Prima; Sentiment - Artistic Outpost "Geek is Chic" set; Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; Metal Sculpting net & decorative pins - Dollar Store.

Night all...

I love them both! That little Gorjuss gal is as cute as can be, and your DP is perfect! I'm wondering if I have anything flocked in my collection... The second card is awesome as well. I love the sentiment, and the burlap, and the 'rough' look compared to the 'soft' of the first! Great job!
