Drunken Stampers Fuzzy Challenge was to create something with ferrets, or at least using a photo of one of our ferrets, since we often refer to them as "The Fuzzies."
But I decided that our little monsters aren't yet ready for stardom and that I should stick to flocking powder.
Unfortunately the flocking powder didn't work out. Actually, it worked out: I didn't like the result. The problem, I think, is that I only have white flock. There's no written evidence, but it's a good guess that the white was purchased with the idea to use it for Christmas. Snow or something.
But even in person the white flock is hardly visible. Plus I'm too impatient or dumb to figure out how to make it work really well. Yeah. I'm not going to be running out for more flocking powder.
Anyhow it's all OK because plenty of paper companies make flocked, printed designs. The one on this box cover is from Die Cuts With a View La Creme stack. It's a stack full of gorgeous, vintage wallpaper style prints that I use often.
After finishing my little box I realized that I could have skipped the flocked paper, too, because the green flower center is fuzzy corduroy! Yay!
Now, you should start working on your own fuzzy project and give us a share at the Drunken Stampers Challenge blog before midnight January 21st.
Oh yeah! I nearly forgot! That's a Tim Holtz idea-ology hitch fastener standing tall as the box lid handle! Cool, huh? Love those hitches!
Alright the real Fuzzies won a chance at notoriety: Sparky is the brown one. That's her not wasting time digging Santa's presents out of the stocking, instead she's just stealing the whole thing. Then you've got Finn. He's protecting the booty from dangerous toy-stealing monsters.
