Today's High Hopes challenge is brought to us by the talented Jeanne. She is challenging us to get that fuzzy feeling. I went through my stamps and decided on this cute little doggie, Odie. I thought he would be perfect for flocking. I colored him in and then added white fun flock to the white areas of hair. I pulled out my Sultry patterned paper (Basic Grey, and my spring moss cardstock, ink, and satin ribbon. While my rectangle piece was still in the nestability die, I sponged spring moss ink on it. I added a dark chocolate layer and added my doggie using foam adhesive to my sponged rectangle. I assembled my card and added a little stitching and some rhinestones. I also stamped the part hat on a piece of white cardstock, added some glitter, and cut it out before adding it to my doggie.
I think you can see the white flocking better in this image. Join us in the challenge for a chance to win some free stamps and if you post on SCS, be sure to add the HHC20 keyword so we can find your card.
