Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Felt

Hi Everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog!  It is time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Felt. I love the texture and warmth felt can give a project! 

I hope you get a chance to play along. The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge.

Here's my take on the challenge using the felt and stitching for inspiration. 

I started with an embroidery hoop and sponged on distress ink. Next I cut a circle the size of the back of the embroidery hoop from a linen fabric and a second time from card stock and adhered the two layers together and glued them to the back of the hoop. 

At the top I added a metal embellishment from my stash. The metal was silver toned but since I wanted a gold look I covered the metal with Delicate Golden Glitz Ink and gold embossing powder and then used my heat tool to set the layers of ink and powder. I cut the word "joy" with a die from Taylored Expressions, the Joy Script die, from gold glittered card stock. 

I used Taylored Expressions Felt; it is the best felt! The holly leaves are cut with dies from the TE Holiday Florals Dies, and the rose with the Rolled Flower Die from Maya Road. The Small Vintage Paper Flower in White and the Oh Deer Resin Charm in Cream are also from Maya Road. I finished my project off with gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh
