Hello Crafty friends
I have discovered a new material to play with called Lutradur. You can cut it, ink it, paint it and melt it.
I used nesting dies to cut out the basic shapes and I cut one from Lutradur. I then glued ribbon on the back of the felt shape. I then painted the Lutradur with the Aztec Metallic Lustre paints and once dry I stitched the two parts together. Leave a gap for the stuffing.
The heart I painted in gold and I stitched it onto brown felt. I melted the edges a bit to give it a worn look. I cut out two smaller hearts and painted one with white pearl and one with copper Aztec Eco
Metallic Lustre. I then added lace trim across the centre of the pearl white heart and used a strong glue to hold the layers together. I finished it off by adding a small heart and a cabochon to the centre.
The baulble was painted with copperAztec Eco Metalic Lustre and then i cut out a smaller circle from burlap and glued this to the centre and added a ribbon bow. I finished off with a large button and a large flat back gem in the centre.
