This month is anything but a card using flock.
I decided to make a box for a present incorporating the above. Last month I had the pleasure of going to the WOW HQ with fellow DT's and we did a technique with foil, flock, embossing powder and double sided sticky sheets. I loved this technique and so I have replicated it for the box embellishments.
Firstly I painted my box with white gesso. Then using black cardstock attached double sided sticky sheets to it leaving one side with the film on. Then I ran them through the big shot with spellbinder dies.
I then peeled off the backing (keep this for a further project with alcohol inks) and then used a leaf metal stencil and placed this over the sticky. The WOW technique came next. Get a stencil -I chose a Dreamweaver leafy stencil and put it down on the sticky side. Take the different foils, I chose pink and dark blue and rubbed this into the stencil. When pulled away some of it stays in the stencil crevises. After that I used sky blue flock and rubbed this over the stencil, putting back in the pot what I didn't use.
I then peeled the stencil off and sprinkled lagoon embossing powder over the pattern. The embossing powder stuck to the areas hidden by the stencil. I then used a heat gun lightly over the cut outs and the embossing powder melted and formed ridges in the pattern. I then covered it with bright white embossing powder to give it a vintage look.
I then finished off with a pearl brad.
I then used the new summer distress inks around the edges.
Happy crafting this week
