It's time for the next challenge over at The Fashionable Stamping Challenge and this time the lovely Claire has chosen Paper Piecing. This isn't something I've ever done before so I was a little stumped at first and I'm not sure I've done it properly now, but never mind !
I started this project with a piece of cardboard and I ripped off some of the top layer. Then I used Guacamole Fresco Finish paint followed by Brown Shed and Chocolate Pudding. I've used Artistic Outpost stamps from the Generation Redux and A Lovely Day sets.
The flower is made using Wendy Vecchi stamps and I've stamped them onto a mixture of Basic Grey paper. I've cut them out, layered them and used an Ideaology brad in the centre. The leaves are also made using a Wendy Vecchi stamp this time stamped onto My Minds Eye paper. The lace is May Arts and the buttons are from my stash. Quite a simple project but I really liked it in the end !
I'm also entering this into the Artistic Outpost March Referral which is Anything Goes.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
