Flocking Fun!

Paper Craft Planet's Back to Basic's lesson this week (#6) is on Fuzzy Flock! Something I always thought was too mess to play with, but after seeing the tutorial it didn't look so bad. Plus, with a chance to win some prizes I had to play. So, I went to Michael's and picked up some of the Fuzzy Flock. Of course, I couldn't just pick up one container, I had to get two different sets of colors! Both cards today are using the Oh So Majestic set. I also have the Saltwater Taffy colors and hope to try those soon. I'm thinking I can make some fun cards for tween girls with the saltwater taffy colors!

On to the cards I made...The first one is using the Bundle of Joy set. I thought the flocking would be perfect for the giraffe's spots. I also used SCS's Color Challenge today CC240 and an old Sketch Challenge SC242.
The second card uses an old set (2000) Spooktacular Greetings. I thought the black cat would be perfect in black flocking. As I was playing I thought I would also add the flocking to the witch's hair. She needed some drama! I found an old scrap of paper that had some great colors for Halloween and used that as my color palette. The other papers are black, Apricot Appeal and Kiwi Kiss. The ribbon is the striped Kiwi Kiss with a piece of black grogain over it.
I can't wait to try the Saltwater Taffy colors. We'll see what later tonight or tomorrow brings. So glad to be back in the swing of creating! Maybe one of these days I'll actually figure out how to make my blog more attractive!
