This week's challenge at Saturated Canary is to do some paper piecing. I'd never done any before so I thought this would be a good excuse to give it a go. I love Krista's images so much and I love trying my hand at any new (to me) technique I find so it was a match made in
It was really easy and I think it makes a nice impact. You can see in the photo below that I've pieced sweet little Whispy Fairie's wings, skirt overlay, and leggings. I used the same DSP for some of the matting on my card to help make everything very cohesive.
I colored her with my ProMarkers and continue to fall deeper in love with coloring digis. It's been almost 2 months since I started and every time I finish an image I feel like a little girl waiting for someone to give me my gold star for coloring inside the lines.
Here are a couple more pictures of my card:
The items used on this card are:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Pink rose: Handmade using Cricut Flower Shoppe
Mulberry paper flowers: Ebay
Heart charm: Michaels Dollar Bin
Bling swirls: Recollections
Tiny ball fringe: Joann (How cute is that?)
Seam binding: Etsy
Large pearl brads and beads for stick pin: my stash
Border punch: Martha Stewart
Sentiment: Papertrey Ink
Cheesecloth: My kitchen
The frame for the sentiment was stamped and cut using my brand new Cricut Posh Frames set. I just got it a couple of days ago. After I have a chance to play with it some more, I'll right a little review to let you know what I think of it.
Here is one final shot of my card:
