Heart's on Fire

ETA: photo with safety-pinned sentiment, the original one hanging from the thread was bothering me a little. It's fine, you can call me a "dork".

Heart's on fire! 

The felt heart is cut out, stuffed and stitched. The tag hanging has a tongue-in-cheek "warm" wishes sentiment. I thought the burlap left on my desk from my last card would add some nice, warm texture.

For the fire I I played around with alcohol markers on acetate to get the ink to puddle up, then draw through the pools to get a fire-like effect. Then it's stitched in between the top layers.

Thanks for looking!

Supplies used: felt, burlap, Spectrum Noir markers, acetate, tag, PTI Tag Its
