Hi everyone! Today over at Just Us Girls, Sharyn is hosting the technique challenge and she chose paper piecing. It's a simple technique that adds so much to an image.
I've been seeing so many Valentine cards around blog land, so I decided to make one for my hubby. And whenever I think of paper piecing, I always think of MFT stamps, specifically the Pure Innocence girls. I love paper piecing their dresses! But then I came across this set called Little Loveosaurus and I thought it would be adorable paper pieced. (I think it's retired because I couldn't find it on their site.) I love the sentiment too! I stamped the image on Yours Truly dp from Echo Park and cut it out. I also stamped it on white cardstock and colored the head, teeth, and triangular things on its back and tail. I added Wink of Stella shimmer on those triangular things and the teeth, then added glossy accents on top. It really makes it shimmer! I did the same with the small red hearts. The sentiment was stamped on the word bubble die.
You can see more fabby paper piecing from the design team and our Guest Designer at these blogs.
Thanks for stopping by!
