Combining inspiration for a great birthday card!
I would be lying if I didn't say I am rather pleased with the outcome of this card. It all started with this post fringed-felt-flower-video-tutorial by Julie Ebersole. I had to make a felt flower - I had all this excess felt off cuts from when I made the fez . So I followed her video and fell in love with the whole process of making such a fun embellishment. I decided I was going to send this to my husband's auntie whose eyesight is failing and would appreciate the texture and dimension. Now all I needed with the right layout. I went to Moxie Fab Felt Challenge got loads of inspiration to continue on my quest but couldn't find quite the right layout that I needed. Then I happened upon this layout --> at StampTV and the accompanying beautiful inspiration card! Wowzer you should go take a look! Go on... really go and take a look it is just a beautiful card AND perfect for what I needed.
I think I fulfilled all my requirements and made a great card thanks to a lot of inspiration from some very talented ladies. It took a couple of attempts to find the right color Copic to match my red, the first one when applied direct to paper looked a perfect match but when I airbrushed it was way too pink.
