Relax...

*******My birthday blog candy is still going on - check out the details here.*******


Good morning!

Was your weekend a relaxing one? One of my favorite ways to relax is to take a nice long shower - there's just something about the steam and heat that help wash away my tension. After I finish, I love to wrap myself in this big white fluffy robe my husband got for me several Christmases ago. Ahh...

When I saw the folded robe in Rupa's new Perfectly Polished stamp set, I wanted to flock it to make it all fluffy. Doodlebug's white and orange flocks along with Sakura's Quickie Glue pen worked perfectly and I was so happy with how it worked. I hope you can see the texture in my first photo. Using my sketch challenge going on over at PaperCraft Planet this week I made this card last night.

To help with the application of the flock, I stamped the robe - and the towels that you see in the photo below - in Black versafine ink and embossed with Detail Clear Embossing powder. I think the ridges of the embossing powder helped to keep the flock in place. I colored the orange section with a Copic marker before I applied the flock just incase it went on a little spotty - I didn't want any white showing through.

I didn't stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card, but I did put this little stack of towels in the bottom right hand corner...


I popped them up to help them stand out a little bit. I colored with a light yellow and orange Copic marker before applying the flock here as well.
Have a great RELAXING day!
