Faux Flocking Tutorial:

Over a Powder Pal tray, take your paper snips scissors and run the blade along the edge of the Yoyo Yellow cardstock as you would if you were trying to distress the edge. As you are doing this, you'll notice small fine cardstock “dust” falling into your Powder Pal tray. These are your Faux Flocking pieces. Use your finger to push them into a pile.

Color image with a Stampin Write Marker to match flocking. Apply a small amount of Crystal Effects, in a thin even layer, over the area where you want to add the flock. Turn that over and press it into your pile of “faux flocking” so that it sticks to the Crystal Effects. Pat down gently so that it sticks well.
