Flocking vs Flower Soft

Initially I chose to use Polar White Flower soft on my bunny because the houndstooth background was created with a Crafter's Workshop Template and Banana Pudding Glimmer Mist. I stamped the image in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with sticky embossing powder. I found the coverage insufficient. Then I tried the same thing with white flocking. The image was brighter, but still somewhat translucent. The key was to use white ink with the sticky embossing powder and white flocking. This gave the best coverage. Lesson learned--use the same colour of ink as you do flocking to get even and consistent coverage. Use Flower Soft for a more dimensional image and flocking for a smoother one (like fur).
