A flocked deer you say?

I've used this stuff before, but why didn't it appeal to me then like it does now? I have flocked quite a bit these last few days (before the bug!) and this deer was no exception. I really enjoy doing the simple cards...as much as the intricate ones, but I couldn't resist adding just a bit extra to this one. He was just too plain.


The image is from Basic Grey stamped in Jumbo Java Versa Magic on Neenah Natural cardstock. I used my Sakura Stardust gelly roll on his antlers. I punched a Martha Stewart snowflake from some kraft paper and covered it with diamond glaze and Martha Stewart Mica flakes...and these are gorgeous! The center is a gem from K & Company. The ribbon is PTI chocolate with some Flourishes layered on top. It's cream on one side and a brownish gold on the other...gorgeous!

This is lovely Danielle! wonderful colors and super ribbons - I used flock once and didn't like it - I guess I need to revisit it and practice application - maybe I'll love it too! I certainly have enough of it laying around and not being used LOL!!!
