Needle Felting

I just tried needle felting for the first time today!
It is so fun and really easy!! I thought this turned out pretty well for a beginner.
I found a wonderful how-to at this site. This site shows how to create using cookie cutters.
It worked really well. I thought it was the perfect way to form a decent shape.
I made a pin out of this one, but will add these little do-dads to cards and such in the future.

Owl's are Nice

I made this card for a friend. I LOVE the owl rub-on..It was very hard to use, I wanted to just hoard it forever.
I painted the background and hammered the little circle things into the corner. I topped it all off with a bit of shimmer using water-color medium.
Of course I had to use my doodle stamps and white craft ink..I just can't get enough of that look!

I made this card for my best friend, Kim who is expecting a baby next month.
The heart is made with sculpty clay and then I used the sculpty glaze to make it shiny.
The letters are stickers and the branch type things are rub-on's. Its pretty darn simple but I was happy with the result!

Birthday Cards are fun to make!

Ok, another birthday card!
I am not a fan of the typical "Happy Birthday", random art is much more fun.
I made this for my friend/neighbor Tandra....Happy Birthday girl!
I used a bunch of stuff on this, a vintage bingo card, glass glitter, page from a french book, a photo I took, felt flowers and fabric paper!
