Have you felted?

You know, I'm absolutely jiggered tonight... a nearly 200 mile round trip to Create and Craft in Peterborough, to bring you lots of lovely goodiness that you all bought!!!! And tonight, I've chilled out a little and had a good nosey at my Pinterest - something I don't get to do too often! 

I've even uploaded a few photos on there... **reminder to self... I need to upload more often!**

Anyway, tonight, I want to share a project I did at my demo over at the wonderful Sophies Crafts on Saturday. It was towards the end of the day, and I had a few minutes spare to run up a quick project and combine a few items they had left. 

They had a few of our nesting dies, so I used a few of them to create this project. Now, I love working with felt, and this little flower was created using a technique I shared on the Creativity Club part of the Docrafts forum a while ago. Doesn't it look wonderful?

The paper in the background is from the Chronology range of papers, and I thought it went perfectly with the  pastel colour felts. These come in packs with quite a wide array of wonderful colours in there.. I just love it. It feels so perfectly soft and fluffy. Well, it started feeling like that until I got my mitts on it!!!

Here you can see the flower in more detail. I love the mottling and distressed look of the felt when it's been treated to my butchery!!! But all in all, I love the soft distressing on this card. Now this is my sort of steampunk...

I hope you're inspired to get out your die cuts and do a little bit of crafting... I'd love to see what you've been making. So drop me a comment in my li'l old comment box and I'll pop over and share some love!
