Totally Papercrafts ,,,,, Paper Piecing Challenge

Good Morning I hope you are all well and looking forward to a weekend of crafting !! :-) It is Friday and that means it's time for a new theme on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge :-) We have some good news too , Marion aka Cards By Marion has agreed to join our fab team :-) Welcome aboard Marion xx

This week Caroline chose the theme and she chose

PAPER PIECING :-)

I love this technique, it is brilliant for covering up colouring disasters !! I use it ALOT !! sshhh :-)

We are sponsored by Squigglefly and one lucky entrant can choose 5 fab digi images :-)



I made this card using a fab Greeting Farm stamp , this is called Monday ,,, isn't she cute !! I used very few Copics here ,, a few greys and skin tones !! Her skirt, top and hairband are paper pieced. The papers are Kaiser Craft and the sentiment is Inkadinkado. The frame is a Nellie Snellen die, the punched flowers are also from Nellie Snellen. I coloured a grungeboard key hole with a black copic marker and smothered it with Crackle Accents. The charm was in my charm drawer :)


Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so please pop over to the TPC to see them and also please go and say Hi to Marion :-)

It must be the week for paper piecing - I rarely use it, but have done two cards this week which are paper pieced.
