Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge




Well, happy Tuesday to you and welcome to this month's Blog Hop! I was so excited when I saw that Felt was the challenge item. I had no felt, so I had to quickly order some and as soon as I did, I knew what I wanted to do with it:




 I love the way the felt looks AND feels on this card.  I stamped the flowers onto a piece of the felt and cut them out. The flowers just look so dreamy and they were easy to cut out because the papertrey felt is 100% wool! No stragglies! lol. I then stamped the Lily of the Valley directly onto the Barely banana because I wanted it to have a background color. I knew that I had seen folks color the background in with Copics and the airbrush thingy, but I don't have the right coor Copics or the airbrush thingy, so this was the next best thing for me. :) After I stamped the flower onto the BB cardstock, I simply used my scortape to adhere the felt flowers over the stamped ones. Voila! I also love the way the Dotti Biscotti paper looks as a background..love love love it. I'm wondering what else I can do with the felt, so I'll be hopping around to other blogs looking for great ideas! Happy Hopping and thanks for stopping by!
