Hello friends. Playing along with Ashley and her Make it Monday challenge where she shows how adding felt to your cards really dresses them up. My selection of felt is a little limited, but I actually really like what I came up with using the Songbirds stamp set (this one's for you Helen F.!). Take a look:
I started with a Tag Sale #4 die and stamped the background with a retired SU! (En Francais) stamp in gold ink, and then layered my tree branch and bird from Simply Chartreuse, Scarlet Jewel, and Aqua Mist felt on it. I wanted to pull a little more of the Aqua Mist into the card, so I created a little strip of DSP using Polka Dot Basics and the Snowflake Sparkle stamp sets, and then layered that to the card base that I had covered with a scrap of DSP from my stash. I also distressed most of the card with Antique Linen ink, and then lastly added the banner with the music in Scarlet Jewel and a few sequins.
Make sure you check out Ashley's beautiful cards and her video for tips on working with felt...you WILL be inspired! You can find it all right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
