Cupcake Craft Challenge – #75 Matching Set

I love this digi stamp: Tales From Polycraft: Sweet Dreams Collection: Aurelia Mooncatcher. She is just too sweet. I've wanted to use her for a while and this challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge gave me the perfect oppertunity. I thought a bit of flocking would add a nice touch to the card... it's been a while since I used flock... they call it Fun Flock and after this project I'm not sure why. The Stamp N'Bond doesn't seem to "grab" the flock well so I ended up "drawing" the image on again with a glue pen and then flocking on the card. On the jar I tried stamping the image I wanted flocked first in red ink, then covering it with a glue pen to flock. I think the result is about the same. The jar is a bit bolder in color but not as much as I thought it would be! I enjoy the finished result of both though! Not sure if I'll be "flocking" for a while, LOL!

Images are distressed with Antique Linen color. Fun Flock: Chili Pepper Red. Papers are K&Co.

I totally agree with you about the image - it is adorable! Love the red and brown combo you used and how the moon really seems to fly. The flocking looks beautiful - even if it seems it wasn´t fun to use.

Thanks for playing with us at Cupcake Craft this week!

Big hugs,

P.S. Will mail later today hun!
