Paper Piecing

Good morning,

Well, what a day yesterday - cleaning out a student house!!! Need I say any more!

We have a new challenge over at Make My Monday today and my teamie Fliss has chosen the theme of 'PAPER PIECING' and I agree with her, it's a very simple, effective technique that I don't use as often as I should either. Here's my quick and simple DT inspiration ...

Due to lack of time and exhaustion (after all the manic cleaning!) I needed something quick - so thought I would focus on the actual paper piecing rather than all the other stuff I usually bombard my cards with! So one simple stamp (from Katy Sue Designs), layered on one piece of co-ordinating card. I used some paper scraps to paper piece the hat, adding a little touch of colour/shading with my Promarkers. I made the little holes/bubbles using my Crop-a-dile, allowing the orange layer to show through the card for a little extra interest. The stamped sentiment is from my stash.

If you have the time, please pop over to the blog and check out some fantastic work from my teamies.
Hugz, Jan xx
