So the challenge at Creative Inspirations this fortnight, set by Suzi, is Paper Piecing. I love this technique but don't do it often enough, I don't know why as it is so effective! I used K&Co Classic McKenna papers and stamped my image, Shaken not Kissed by Diane Duda, onto three different papers - 1 for the dress, 1 for the tights and 1 for the frog and then once more onto white cardstock. For anyone not familiar with the technique, all that you do is just cut out the bits of the image you want to use for your finished design and stick them on to your previously coloured stamped image. This gives a perfectly co-ordinated image and background.
I added some printed ribbon, a prima paper bloom, a button which I altered with Ranger alcohol inks and finished the whole thing off with a sentiment which was part of an old, retired Stampin Up set 'Along the Same Lines'.
This card also fits the challenges at:
Creative Craft - Stamp It Up
Cooking it up with Katie - Alter embellie (button), Sparkle (crowns) & Die Cut (sentiment)
Your Next Stamp - Printed Ribbon Just Add Ink - Just add - Patterned Paper
