365 Cards - Day 285 - Peace

And yet more from my catchup session.... This is an idea I had last Christmas, but it didn't really work back then, although it does now! The paper is some unnamed 10p a 12"sq sheet from Puffin Crafts, the sentiment is an Inkadinkadoo stamp 606 959.X. Card is 5"x5". And the flocking is using the stamp with PVA and an initial sprinkling of Model Railway makers tiny woodchip flock then (and this is the bit that now works) you very carefully paint over the sentiment with a thick line of PVA again and bury it in flock. Otherwise it looks patchy.

In theory it's quite simple, in practice it takes ages for the second layer of PVA to dry and you get lots of bits dropping off everywhere. Still, once it's done it's rather lovely. Sorry for the poor piccies, there's not much light today and I want to get the mammoth catchup session posted.
