FTTC75 – Felt

 

SONY DSC

Hello everyone~

 

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC75)! This week Betty Wright is our challenge host. Betty is challenging us to use felt! Felt is everywhere right now in the crafting world. It is easier to use than ever with all of the wonderful die cuts available. You can create flowers, borders, accents, and so much more! We would love to see what you create using felt!

BTW, I forgot to mention last week about Flourishes 12 Days of Christmas sale in July!!  All Flourishes Christmas stamps are on sale for 25% off until Sunday, Jul 18th.! Time to stock up now! ….Sorry for the belated notice :P

 

SONY DSCI love the look of felt..they give a great texture and fun look for projects! For today’s challenge, I used the swirl felt border. They are so easy to use for both card making & scrapbooking, and available different designs and colors. You can check out other designs HERE. The palm tree image is from Beach Life set and the greeting “A Happy Hello” is from Tag Lines. After I stamped the image with Memento tuxedo black on the classic white mat, I colored with Copic Markers. Then, I colored the background with Memento ink using sponge daubers. The ocean line was masked with the sticky paper when it was sponged. For the embellishments, I used the cotton satin ribbon and dew drops.

メインパネルのスポンジング、本当に素晴らしいです!!!
そして、この鮮やかなカラー達をこんなにもきれいにまとめあげられるなんて…さすがMakiさんです。(私の場合、2色まではなんとかなりますが、3色超えるとパニックです^^;)
