Feb 29 Paper Piecing Challenge

Welcome back to my blog.

The challenge this week is paper piecing, a interesting challenge, I have never tried it before but glad that this challenge has helped me once again step out of the box to try something new that I will definately try again. I'm not sure it you have ever tried doing this, but you can print off your image or stamp it and cut out the pieces instead of coloring them- then glue your pieces onto your image. It adds more texture to your image . I have rather enjoying trying this.

I would love for you to try this and if you do add it to the Whimsy challenge blog for a chance to win digital stamps. I used this really cute Crissy digi from Whimsy Stamps called In The Doghouse. Click here to jump over to the Whimsy blog to check out the DT creations for a little inspiration.

Here is the card that I used for this weeks challenge.

I paper pieced the dog house, flowers & grass.

I used copic markers to color the dog, the words were cut out using the making memories slice machine. I cut the bone out of paper as well then I popped a brad into where the nail should be to hang the sign. I used wire to twist it throught the sign to give it the look that it is hanging. I really enjoyed making this card, hope you have enjoyed looking

Thanks for stopping by!
