More fun with flock!

Here's another card that's waiting for a sentiment - though I may just send it without as a simple "hello" card.  The light blue patterned paper is from the paper swap I've mentioned frequently in recent posts.  It is a "Shine Design" from HOTP.  I've been experimenting with embossing various patterned papers, so I ran this piece through an embossing folder.  I love the additional texture!

The focal was created in a similar way to what I showed yesterday - dimensional paint and flocking with a stencil.  In this case, I started with a piece of blue glimmer paper that I had cut and embossed with a Spellbinder's die.  I used blue paint for the bird and green for the rest of it.  After removing (and cleaning) the stencil, I added white fun flock.  I then decided to use a touch of red Stickles for the berries.  After it dried, I matted it on a piece of white glimmer paper that was cut and embossed with another Spellbinder's die from the same set. (This is one of my favorite die sets - Resplendent Rectangles - one of their Majestic Elements series).
