Technique Tuesday #20

Hi everyone!

Welcome to this weeks Technique Tuesday. In these posts I share a technique that can be applied to many forms of paper crafting ~ card making, scrapbooking, albums and tags. I alternate Technique Tuesday and Tuesday’s Tip just to change things up a bit.

This week’s technique: FLOCKING.

Flocking is the process of depositing many small fiber particles (called flock) onto a surface to give it a velvety look and feel. This technique can be done for animals, flowers or any stamped image. I think it would be especially fun for a child’s card or a baby shower invitation {as shown in this example}.

You will need: a stamped or die cut image, flock, white glue, small paint brush, piece of scrap paper.



With the paint brush, cover stamped image with an even layer of white glue. The thicker the glue, the more thicker the flock can be applied.



Sprinkle on theĀ flock to completely cover the image. Gently press the flock into the glue.



Shake off excess powder and fold scrap paper in half to funnel the remaining flock back into the container.



I cut out the little bear with the matching die and added him to a baby shower invitation. *Please note: the flocking does flatten a bit after it’s been through the die cut machine but still has a velvety feel.


I hope you enjoyed this weeks technique. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. See you next time!
