Less Is More - Week 138 - Felt or Fabric

Good Afternoon,

We seem to be having a bit of an Indian summer here in the north east of Scotland. Temperatures are supposed to be up to 21c, which would be a nice day in the middle of summer, never mind September. So hopefully it lasts for a few more days.

My in laws were visiting for the weekend so there was no crafting for me until lunchtime when they headed back home.  The first thing I wanted to make was my entry into this week's Less Is More challenge.  This week was have been asked to create a card using felt or fabric.

I actually ended up making two cards for this challenge, as just when I finished my first card a second idea popped into my head.  I will share my favourite one first.

Supplies Used:
MFT - Loopy Bloom
Unity Stamp Co - Music of my Heart
Felt from my sewing box
Clearly Besotted - Leafy Accents Die
Stampin Up - Teeny Tiny Sentiment
Clearly Besotted - Tag Along Die

For my other card I stamped on canvas for the the fabric part of the challenge and then water coloured it

Stampin Up - Canvas
Stampin Up - Simply Sketched
Watercolour Pen

Off now to make some more Christmas cards.

Thanks for visiting
