I really enjoy working with these jumbo silhouette blooms. They are great for fast cards because they are very bold (see my Make n Take cards in my album) and they are pretty fun to add all the bells and whistles too. You can stamp them in silhouette or use brush art markers on them. I think the next techniques I am going to do are chalk pastels over white embossing powder or chalk pastels over white pigment ink.
Stampers Magic Red Liner tape 1/4" wide for flocked stripes and 3/16" wide tape for the glass bead trim http://starvingartistamps.com/other_cool_stuff.html
How to make the flocked stripes:
Run strips of red liner tape onto kraft cardstock, dump flocking on to the stripes. Rub the flocking into the tape in a circular motion. I usually do a pretty big piece and then cut what I need.
