It's been flocked!

I've been working on my samples for one of my April classes at the LSS in Green Valley, AZ and the owner wanted me to use Fun Flock.  Well, I haven't played with the velvety stuff in quite some time but it all came back when I opened the jars.  I will be teaching 3 cards that progressively get harder, at least to my way of thinking.  I used a retired set called Easter - very appropriate for my cards.  So, without further ado...

Here's all three.  As you can see the bottom left is the easiest but I want my students to get a feel for the gluing and flocking.

Here it is by itself.  Very easy.

And doesn't this little chickie-poo just look so soft and cuddly? For glue I prefer using my Zig 2 Way glue pen.  I have pretty good control with it.  And of course I used Yellow Fun Flock!  The solid cardstocks are by Bazzill and the pattern paper is all from the LSS.

I will show the other cards shortly.  Are you getting ready for Easter?  I prefer inspirational cards but these are just great for young children and grandchildren!  Since the store will be keeping them until after Easter I'll probably make some more using TAC paper to send to our kids and grandkids.

AWE how cute is this little chicken - I wanted to touch. I use flocking more in the winter as I never think I get good coverage with colors. I will have to try the 2 way glue pen. TFS

Hey, Carol, flocking is fun! Your flocked cards are fun to browse. This upcoming LSS class with flock has to be fun! Missing the fun class using flocking will not be fun.
OOOOoooooo...... sadness. Hopefully, you will post pics of gals and their finished projects. We'll all be checking back.
Meantime, papercrafting in heavenly spaces with so many many Japanese residents in my heart. All offerings were suspended Sunday allowing for giving to assist search and rescue aides with material supplies already in preparation/ flight. Bless 'em, each one, every split-second.
Keep Looking Up!
