Stamping and Masking with Flocking by Shona Erlenborn


Up until now, I have used Flocking and Sparkle N Soft with the Brushable Glue to add texture to stamp images.  Although I love the effect this affords, I found an easier way of placing the flocking exactly where I want it. 

Apply the Flocking (or Sparkle N Soft) to a piece of Tear-ific Tape, burnish the flocking in well with your finger. If the tape is not wide enough for the image, then use the Super Adhesive Sheets. Stamp the image on top of the flocked piece with black ink. Cut out your image if you like.  Here is a sample of a labrador done with Elephant Gray flocking:



Take it a step further, using the protective backing of the tapes or Super Adhesive Sheets as a mask.


First, stick a piece of the Adhesive Sheet on white cardstock. Stamp the image on to the protective backing. Remove backing and cut along the outline of the cat on the left.  Replace the mask over the exposed tape.



Using tweezers put down dabs of Elephant Gray:



Turn piece upside down to remove excess, and return it to jar.  Then apply Snow White flocking to the rest of the exposed tape, burnishing it in with your finger:



Remove the mask:



Repeat on the left side with Amber Wheat and then Buff flocking:


Stamp the image on a Stamp Positioner and position it over the flocked piece:



Remove positioner and stamp the image directly on flocking in black ink:








Cut out image:



Here is the card I made with the flocked image:
