hare collage for IndigoBlu

Hello there! Well its been a busy few days. My lovely Lucy was 13 yesterday and we had a lovely day out - but more about that later.
I want to share my latest make for IndigoBlu today. Its a collage I made including fabrics and needle felting.

Here's how I put it together .....

First I stamped the image of the hare on soluble paper - I just used the outline to needlefelt it.

No hares were harmed in the making of this!!!  

Once made I did a white one too and then rinsed away the paper.

Next I used an IB stencil and IB paint onto a burlap panel...

Stamping of an IB flower onto felt and fussy cutting...

More stamping on felt....

and stamping onto card...

and finally the assembly!

I hope you like it!

Now for some pics of the birthday girl's day!
