Digi-stamped card

This card was digi-stamped using 'Vicky' from Sketching Stamper, then the dress was paper pieced using K&Co Sparkly Sweet paper (close-up below)

I layered her up on Core'dinations CS and matted it on black. The background is the same paper again matted on black and to break it up I added the black Dovecraft ribbon. The image panel is popped up on foam pads and I added 3mm Artwork crystals to finish it off.

As it turns out, paper piecing is my favourite technique (this week anyway), so it fits in with the challenge over at Charisma Cardz: "My Favourite Things". Looks like I'll be entering my 2nd challenge in as many days!

Thanks for popping by!

Papertake Weekly Challenge Entry

Well, I've been saying for ages that I'm going to enter one of the many challenges I've come across, and here it is: my first ever challenge entry!

It's an A6 card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge, and it was to include 1 circle, 2 ribbons and 3 stamps. The circle is the nestabilities, the two ribbons are small but definitely there, and it gave me the opportunity to use my MFT Punny Farm stamp set which I love, but find hard to use (in a creative sense, not literally!). I paper pieced the hat and wellies using K&Co Sparkly Sweet DP, and used another sheet from the same block for the background layer. I coloured the rest of the image using Whispers markers.

Thanks for looking as always
