Paper Piecing at Crafty Creations

It was my turn to choose the theme for this week's challenge at Crafty Creations so I chose a technique I enjoy doing - Paper Piecing! The image I have used is one of my own available here and I printed it out on white cardstock and on patterned paper from a First Edition set called Hideaway, love the glittered pages and the spring colours :o) I made the flower with punched flower shapes which I spritzed with water and crumpled before drying with my heat gun and inking the edges. The image was coloured with Promarkers, the sentiment was from a Buzzcraft set of unmounted stamps and the swirls are Sizzix die cuts.
