ATC Swap - Fuzzy

Okay--who chose this theme?? Oops, it was me. Fuzzy? I don't know what I was thinking.
I think I had some idea of fun flock and the Cricut Paper Pups cartridge. Since then I got some "Velvet Blossom Trim" in a grab box from Maya Road and decided it was a good fuzzy. But how to use it? So, here is my process and hope the final picture is an outstanding ATC.

Still wanted to use that fun flock. So, Maya Road ribbon and bugs...



YIKES!

I recently purchased some lovely stamps from Inkadinkado entitled Mindscapes. So, again, bugs and the velvet ribbon.


I think the ribbon is such a deep color that is where I am making my biggest mistake. So:



Well, better, but outstanding?? At this point I e-mailed pictures of my attempts to my wonderful sister Leslie and her response was: "Was there another option? LOL" Good ole Leslie.

Sorry some of the pictures are a little fuzzy (pun!) I think the camera needed new batteries. In the meantime and while several days pass: I want to give you a couple of links. I absolutely LOVE Maya Road products. Everything they have just appeals to me and I have purchased one or two of their items... Take a look: http://www.mayaroad.com/

Also, I would like you to see the Inkadinkado Mindscape stamps. Look closely to see that the designs are made up of other pictures. The butterfly has fairies, the dragonfly is made up of birds, the ladybug has a dragonfly, the 5 point star is butterflies and the hummingbird is also butterflies. See that butterfly that makes up the whole hummingbird wing? Here is the link: http://inkadinkado.eksuccessbrands.com/zoomimage.aspx?pid=95017

So, finally, I revisited and explored my original thoughts. Okay--maybe original ideas can work. I used the Paper Pups cartridge for the dog (of course), the card and the sun. AND I got to use that fuzzy ribbon I had. So, the ribbon, dog, and sun are fuzzy and I'm happy. And relaxed finally.
