Creative Inspirations Challenge 37 - Paper Piecing

Good Morning Dears, I hope you are having a lovely weekend, over at Creative Inspirations today we have a brand new challenge and it was my turn to choose the theme. I've opted for Paper Piecing, it's one of my favourite techniques but I don't do it often enough.

I've gone with my Belles & Whistles Sisters stamp and used promarkers for the skin and then paper pieced the blouses, trousers and the little hat using the same papers as I've used for the main card. I've even pieced the little patches on their trousers in a different paper. I think it looks good. The flowers are marianne's creatabilities cut from the same paper and sprayed with crafters companion iridescent spray & sparkle. The swirl die is from mariannes creatabilities too and is cut using DCWV textured card. The full recipe is below this post.

Our Sponsor this week is the lovely Debbie from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs and she is giving you the chance of winning some of her wonderful images. Do pop over and take a peek you won't be disappointed. Just click on the picture below to take you there.

Thanks a bunch for popping in to visit, I hope you enjoyed your stay and that you'll come back and see me soon. I'll be back later with another DT card for The Crafty Pad challenge.

Bye for now
