Flocked Lines

Here is a submission to one of the techniques of the week from the recent Technique Junkie newsletter....Flocked Lines.  I was searching through my stamps for one that I wanted to use for this technique when this Hampton arts stamp jumped out at me.  It just seemed perfect for the technique even though it wasn't a flourish like some of the samples.  Wanted to keep it CAS since the flocking is really the star!!  Instead of gluing on the ribbon, I punched to small holes in the cardstock and tied it on.  You know it won't fall off that way!!

Hope you enjoy!

Handmade paper

Here is a card made with some handmade paper.....a technique from the most recent Technique Junkie newsletter.  Pretty cool way to get some handmade stuff without all the special stuff!!   It took a little longer to dry than I anticipated.  I used Distress Inks to ink and some postage stamps from my neglected stamp box.  Hope you enjoy!!
