today I am here to show you a project I created for Eileen Hull (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/)Inspiration team using the heart and soul die (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661108/sizzix-bigz-die-flower-heart-soul) and spring leaves (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661111/sizzix-bigz-die-leaves-spring)die but it is not your typical project…
I had taken a powertex class from the wonderful Cheryl Bogliali in 2016 at a local retreat and fell in love with the product but alas didn’t really do much with it again until I sat down with my sister and created our figurines ….. but the itch to create was still quite strong. so when Eileen challenged her inspiration team this month to create using her dies in a different way …. well out came my powertex and Kunin felt and well here is what I did
I started off by die cutting the flower and leaves out of Kunin felt. I opted to use the darker colours as I wasn’t sure how this project would turn out. I then soaked them in powertex making sure the felt was completely saturated
I then attached it to a bottle using some cotton and let it set for a very long time to dry……. once it was completely dry I set out to add a bit of shimmer, a few stones and a dragonfly brad and this is what I came up with
a simple little wine cuff to attach to a bottle to add that little extra touch to a gift!
how do you use your Eileen Hull dies in a different way!!! do share with us and let us know!
