CHF Challenge Chicks #1

The Cornish Heritage Farms Design Team thought it would be fun to start having weekly challenges. So look for the "CHF challenge chicks" challenges every Monday! For the first week Julia challenged us to use flocking on our card. Flocking is currently the featured product in the store and I just wrote a tutorial on using flocking in the technique talk forum so I was up for this challenge!

I decided to use flocking with my Large Polk a dot Backgrounder stamp. I used the Essential Glue Pad to "ink" up my BG stamp, pressed it on my black card and then covered it with white flocking and let it dry. What do you think?


Stamps:
-Large Polk a Dot Backgrounder by Cornish Heritage Farms
-Pretty Birds (Kim Hughes) by Cornish Heritage Farms

Paper-
-Prismatic Black, white and Intense Teal by Prism Paper
-Heart is cut from a piece of pink felt from Michael's

Ink:
