"Love is in the Air" at Imagination Crafts


Here's my project for the February Challenge at Imagination Crafts. I decided to make something a bit different again using Sparkle Medium on Felt.

Firstly I cut out some heart shapes with felt, one in yellow and one in red (at the back)  then added Bright Red Sparkle Medium to the yellow felt using the Heart Leaf Stencil and Gold Shine onto the red felt. This was then left to dry out.

Once dry I sewed the seams together with red cotton leaving a gap on the top right hand side (for the arrow to come out)
I covered a skewer with red craft tape and made a hole in the centre of the yellow felt, threaded the skewer through and out at the top right. I then added some cardboard cut-outs of the arrow-head and quill at the back. These were drawn free hand and painted with Gold Mica powders.

Before closing the top right seam I stuffed the heart with a little capoc filling to pad it out a bit and added a ribbon to hand up the piece.

I used a "Love" wire embellishment for the front which was sewn onto red felt and added to the front of the heart. I then covered two flowers from the MDF Lantern set with both  Gold and Red Sparkle Medium and Gold Mica powders and added these to the front to finish. Adhesive Gems were added to the arrow at the toop and bottom to give it a bit of bling
Have a go with putting sparkle medium onto felt. It adheres really well and dries really quickly. You can then make all sorts of things for your house and home.
