Fun with Felt!

I love felt! I hoard it, but I love it. lol. I just bought another pack of 12x12 felt shapes by Fancy Pants and I was sitting there trying to find a colour to match my card when it donned on me; USE YOUR COPIC AIRBRUSH SYSTEM AND YOU CAN MAKE THEM ANY COLOUR YOU WANT!! Don't you love "aha" moments? So I grabbed my airbrush, grabbed my camera (ofcourse) and documented my findings. Result: FABULOUS! I am appreciating more and more every day why these markers are so remarkable. (no pun intended haha...)

Directions:
1)Pick a colour of felt that will either be a good base colour, OR use white. (Which is what I decided to do for my first felt shape)
2)Spray shape with the lightest colour (similar to shading) and cover shape completely.
3)Spray with a darker colour to add depth. You could keep going darker, but I only used two colours on my flower.

I adhered the felt to the patterned paper with Aleene's Tacky Glue. Do you see the brown felt shape? It was originally a baby pink colour, and I airbrushed it with a deep brown. LOVE it!

I saw someone the other day use their Scor-pal to emboss their card front (notimetostamp) and I thought it was genius! so I tried it, and it's AWESOME! (I embossed a rectangle frame around the patterned paper. Thanx for looking and visit my SCS post for supplies!
