Challenge #1 - Flocking

Hiya! Happy Monday!

The lovely ladies at Cornish Heritage Farms thought it would be a good way to start the week by issuing a challenge. This week is our first... plenty more on the horizon.

March 31st Challenge... FLOCKING!

I don't know about you, but flocking is a challenge in itself. I tend to get flocking where I don't want it and all over myself. Not a good look, let me tell you. But, Kristine wrote such a wonderful tutorial on how to use it that we all wanted to give it a try. And I have to say - SUCCESS! I really learned a great deal.


This card is also a sneak peek at the April Stamp of the Month: Tyson the Turtle. Isn't he darling?

Fuzzy Tyson:

I stamped Tyson and colored him with Copic markers. Using a Sakura Quickie glue pen, I added glue to the dots on his shell and then covered with Evergreen Flocking from CHF. I used Kristine's tip to let it completely dry before shaking the excess off. Who knew I'd need to be patient??? But it works!!!

Sorry for the monochromatic theme. I was racing a bit to complete several projects.

Please stop by these blogs for projects with flocking:

-Julia Stainton

-Lesley Langdon

-Kristine Reynolds

-Dawn Lusk

-Sherrie Siemens

-Lisa Strahl

-Julie Campbell

-Lori Craig

The CHF forum will also have some chat.

We'd love to see your projects using flocking. Please leave me a comment if you do... or post to the CHF Gallery using the key word FLOCKING to let us know you've participated.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your projects!

Lisa
