Papertrey Ink Make it Monday - Flocked Backgrounds with Dimensional Paste

This week over at Papertrey, the fabulously talented Danielle Flanders took us through the process of making a flocked background with dimensional paste for a Make it Monday.  I didn't have any and couldn't find my gesso so tried with clear silicone and pigment reinkers .... seems crazy but it actually made a rather cool background!!
I used the circle cover plate and attached it with some washi tape to a piece of Aqua Mist card stock.  I mixed some silicone with Fresh Silver Lilac reinker and swiped it using an old paint chip.  I then mixed some Fresh Steel Blue reinker and swiped that along as well.  I let it dry and cut the word using a Wonderful Words die, being careful to keep the inside of the e and o to reattach.

Here's a closeup of the texture:
I kinda like the imperfection!! Later on in the week I found my gesso and made some more backgrounds.  This one also used the circle cover plate and I stamped the Mini Blooms sentiment in Fresh Steel Blue ink before adding a Distress Marker inked (Broken China) Pink Paislee die cut that I added Rock Candy glitter to using Glossy Accents.
I cut the flocked background in strips and adhered some flat and popped some up with foam dots.
My next card used the Chevron cover plate and some more gesso:
I took a leftover silver banner that I had cut using Bountiful Banners and inked up the sentiment from Mini Blooms.  I stamped a whole bunch of flowers and leaves using Fresh ink (Steel Blue, Silver Lilac, Turquoise, Pear and Tuscan Olive).  I attached the banner and flowers and leaves using foam dots and layered them.
I really like the look of flocked backgrounds and will definitely be experimenting more with this ...

I love purple, so all three of these caught my eye. I really love the last one though! Love those chevrons along with those mini bloom flowers.
