This week Papertrey Ink has a tutorial and challenge hosted by Danielle. She has shown us a fabulous idea and technique to use our coverplate dies to create masks to use with dimensional paste to create the coolest flocking effect on our projects. So incredibly cool!
I'll admit, I went to the store to buy some paste (as I didn't have any) and the technique looked so neat. I ended up buying "Light Molding Paste" and it was kinda pricey, but I used a coupon and let me just say that the fun I've had with this technique was totally worth it! If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find all the info here.
I went through my coverplate dies and decided to use the one that looks like a knit sweater. When I saw it, I knew I would pair it with the new Two Feet Deep stamp set. I also layered in a diecut from the new Fancy Flakes set. I thought the snowflake needed some shimmer, so I spritzed it with some Glimmer Mist.
I put the sentiment on the inside:
For my second attempt, I used the Mighty Oak coverplate die. I thought I'd be smart and make a reusable mask this time. The clear card stock is a bit thinner than the PTI card stock and I found it allowed the paste to slip under the mask a bit. I guess I'll stick with paper masks from now on. lol!
After the paste dried, I went ahead and stamped right on top of it. The pattern of the stamps was lost a bit on the paste, so I found I didn't care for this look as much as letting the paste stand on it's own. The paste itself looks so cool and I found it acted like a chameleon, changing color depending on that which it was applied to. If you haven't tried the paste for yourself, I highly recommend it!
Unless otherwise noted, all supplies are from PTI.
Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
