I just made a card using this technique (and the oak tree from Lovely as a Tree and two shades of green card stock) and I love it!!
I didn't need a cosmetic swab to place the glue; I found that the end of the Tombo Multi glue is fine enough to control where the glue goes. I did find that the paper fluff clumped a bit, but all I had to do was lay the card down, take a clump of fluff between my thumb and index finger on each hand, and rub them together, allowing the flakes to separate and fall gently onto the card. After doing this a few times, I had the fluff just where I wanted it.
I had previously tried someone else's technique of using shredded styrofoam ball fluff that was dyed with reinkers, but it doesn't look half as nice as your method.
Thanks SO MUCH for sharing this great technique!! I can't wait to share this at my card club. The ladies will swoon when they see and feel my card!! If I can figure out how to submit a photo, I might put it in the gallery.
Katie...you're wonderful! Not only does this add a WOW factor, but the fluff is colour coordinated with the rest of the card. Did I mention I love it??!!
