Waltzing Mouse BlogParty


Party Time over at the Waltzing Mouse and there is plenty of time to join. For all the info you need just click HERE.
This month's challenge is to use felt or cozy fabric on your card.
I made my heart embellishment from something very cozy -  a glimmer "fiber" called Angelina that I sometimes use with my students when we work with embroidery. It is fun and "festive" to use as it is or you can mix fibers from different colors to get really cool effects .You shape your "wool"and then iron it to fixate it. You can also give your piece of Angelina "fabric" texture using your rubberstamps - but I'll have to come back with a tutorial for that when work has slowed down. My rose is also fabric and handmade from a  bias strip (-:





                        The WMStamps I've used are from Gingham and CO and Fancy Frames.
I used the colors + photo at The RibbonGirls as inspiration and
I'm entering this card for the flower challenge at YCU.
Have a great day and a great party, hugs, Karin
