Felt Fun!

Sentiment is TLC Creations
This mildly grunge piece was made for 613 Ave C's Challenge theme of  "Use Felt".  I wigged a bit... I have no felt in my RubberRoom what so ever!  {Say what??!!}
After much thought, I decided I would use the only felt I could think of in the house.  In our "Fix-it" drawer, along with my hammer and picture hanging gear, I had some felt pads used for the bottoms of chair legs or under ceramic vases or on kitchen cabinet doors to keep them from banging.  They are self adhesive and definitely FELT!  I found in stash some self adhesive ribbon with the same warm grey tones and a sentiment I have longed to use forever. The final step was to "grunge" up the look a bit with Distress Inks along the edges.  Done, done and done!  Sometimes a challenge is definitely a challenge - but rewarding when you meet it.
Wanna see how others are Using felt?  By all means you should check out the creative ideas from the 613 DT which can be seen HERE!
