Colour me Brown

Using the brown felted piece made yesterday I made these two postcard sized pieces.

Over on Needlefelt_Challenge group,the current challenge is BROWN, so this is to fulfill my part.
The upper card has some brown silk fabric needlefelted to the base felt.The paisley print on the right hand scrap I avoided with the needles to preserve its integrity.

The orange type flowers are deconstructed dyed silk rods with doll buttons added as an extra texture;the vine leaves were couched into position.
The lower card has similar elements: parts of the silk rods and couched (down) brown knitting yarn and more of the vine leaves.
I'm thinking of using the remainder of the felted piece for a small embellished purse or bag.

Now to let Myfanwy over at Nuvo Felt Blog,and the Needlefelt_Challenge group know that I've completed another Challenge!
