This week's challenge is from Viv, who want us to use Paper Piecing on our projects. We are sponsored this time by Saturated Canary who are offering 2 of their fabulous digi stamps. And also be Woodware. Pop over to the CCM blog to see a picture of their prize.
For my project, I chose to use 'Ruffles the Clown' from Saturated Canary.
I began by choosing the papers - all from my scraps box. I have had the Brenda Pinnick papers for years - part of a huge scrapboooking kit I bought. And I used a couple of old Papermania papers too.
Next, I printed the image onto Joanna Sheen Elegance card, and also onto each of the papers.
It was then a case of choosing which papers to use where. I'm not the world's best fussy cutter - but most of it wasn't too fiddly. Before sticking the paper pieces onto the card, I coloured the skin with Ivory, Almond and Blush Promarkers - with Pastel Pink for the lips. The hair was a combination of Tawny Owl, Cocoa, Henna and Walnut. I put the pieces through my Xyron sticker maker and fixed them to the image.
I decided to keep the rest of the card very simple - and just used more of the papers to matt and layer the image onto a Craftwork Cards scalloped white base.
Pop on over to the Crafty Cardmakers Blog to check out all the other DT inspiration. We look forward to seeing your creations.
