IHP A Little Felt...

Hiya, peeps. I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, it has just felt like it!


This month, the i {heart} papers team has been challenged to use felt in our projects. This is fabulous stuff, I must say and I've never used anything like it before.


I've used the Pinwheel Posie die to cut my felt and create these darling felt flowers. The felt cuts like a dream using standard dies, like this Memory Box die. It seemed that these flowers were easier to make with felt than with paper! I really love the look.


I coloured for the first time in months. I think I'm a little out of practice...


My copics hardly recognized me. Copics used today; RV91/93/95, G20/21/24/40/43/46, BV20/23/25, N0/2/4, Y21/23/26, B000/00/01, E01/30/31/35/93, colourless blender

I hope you have time to check out what the rest of the ihp team has done with felt today!

stamps; floating down the river (stampavie  from ihp)
paper; fiddlesticks (my mind's eye from ihp), lagoon, flintstone, walnut creme (bazzill)
ink; london fog memento ink (tsukineko from ihp)
accessories; felt ( from ihp), pinwheel posie die (memory box from ihp), paper doily (unknown), lg/sm circles, ornate artisan tags & accents (spellbinders)

How cute Loretta!! Is that the small posie die or the larger one? I'm thinking small b/c mine turned out much bigger and I think it's the larger of the two. LOVE the way those flowers make this pop.
