Felted ATCs


A couple of months ago I asked my friend who does gorgeous felting (not to mention stamping, drawing, painting, carving, and the list can go) to teach me how to felt. I chose to work on atc sized pieces and stuck with floral themes because I can't draw. I finally made those pieces into finished atcs a couple of weeks ago. I added Distress Stickles which is a perfect look for these, embellishments, and "Dream with your eyes wide open" is a stamp from Quietfire Design - I sprayed some muslin with Memory Mist sprays and stamped with Archival ink jet black. I really like how these turned out (they're even better in person) and plan to do more felted atcs.

Wonderful Wanda. They look great. Love the way you incorporated the other items.
I remember doing a make and take at our Heritage fall Fair a couple years ago and had fun doing it then. I've got lots of raw wool, so should pull it out again one day...

These are all lovely! My fav I think is the last one with the butterfly. These are warm and fuzzy ATCs! Just perfect for mid winter!

Funny or coincidence, I was just looking at the wool felting supplies in our fabric store. Didn't buy but these are so lovely I might have to reconsider. What did you felt onto as your base.
