September 3rd... Luxe Designs and flocking

Luxe Designs has some Luxe-urious stamps! So today we are going to add some luxury to our paper. We are going to flock it. That bottle of fuzzy stuff may be intimidating, but it really is easy to use.
These are the stamps we are using today (Luxe Designs Corners)... these are also the stamps that someone is winning today. I have also used their wonderful papers, cardstock stickers, and transparent ribbon. YAY Thank you Luxe Designs (just leave a comment in the comment section and 1 lucky person will win)

Start off by stamping your image on your paper of choice with your ink of choice. Water based is fine here.
Next you will take your adhesive, I'm using Tombow here because it's nice and sticky, and trace the parts of the stamped design you want flocked. (you can skip this step by using a Glue Pad, but it won't be as puffy)
Then you can dump your flock on. Get your flock on, get your flock on. The whole process is really like using... glitter.
Gently press the flock down.
Tap the paper off.

And there you have it a flocked image. Fuzzy wuzzy.

A note here... I took the wonderful Luxe paper, punched the edge and took sand paper to it to bring out the embossing. (see the white raised parts?)

And there you go. I flocked all the pink parts you see. Try flock you'll like it. Try it with these Luxe Designs stamps and papers.
