Opus Gluei #48 Felt up

Once I'd stopped snickering (what a great word that is) about the Challenge title I started thinking.  L-o-n-g s-l-o-w process today....  First I went off on a felt tangent and fancied finding a felt mouse shaped pin-cushion I once made, but that was doomed to failure from the start.  Where to start looking?  About this point I began to wonder where the felt actually was........... PRESTO!!  Very top shelf as you can see (that's it in the plastic bags which try to prevent dust).

Then I thought I'd be very clever and combine an old challenge with this new one because I really liked the basket of flowers from a couple of weeks ago (look here) but when I tried colouring yellow centres, well, it all went pear-shaped.  Trust me, you had to be there.

So...... when in doubt, resort to comfort zone!  Here is my slightly felted offering with profuse apologies for the same old thing in similar packaging (ie black and white again).  I really like this figured paper, and its a scrap of wrapping paper that I had to keep.  The flowers were going to be Mary Quant ones, but morphed into these instead, with little button centres.  The sentiment is just a sticker from the days before I owned any stamps at all.  Have to use them up!!

Then I made some other little things, but that's for another time.


  1. Chat Noir, your work is always so elegant and this is no exception. I love to see what you've created!

  2. Your card is fabulous. I love that you were able to use felt and still it looks so elegant. I usually associate felt with a more casual feel. Wonderful. Love that you showed us where your felt was on the shelf. We love having you play with us on Opus Gluei.

  3. Pretty pretty pretty - nothing wrong with using black and white (you do so marvelously). You're like me with the thought process of well, how about that, no, maybe that and then Eureka! Love how it all comes together. This is a very classic looking card!

  4. WOW - this is beautiful - one day I'm gonna come and fossick around your "busy" room - you have some fun things in there!


love to know what you think.......
