Twice in one day ....... whatever next! Well actually it's tomorrow already for the Happy Little Stampers Challenge ..... they're in Australia! I'm always a little confused as to whether I've got the timing right on this one ..... it'll be even worse later in the month because the clocks go back ..... I'll have to do my calculations again!
We've got a fun theme for you this month ....... Paper Piecing
I love this technique ..... it's great for all those of you who don't like colouring in your stamped images too.
Just stamp your image, stamp it again on nice patterned paper, cut out the bits you want to use and paper piece your original image ..... easy!
This month the challenge is sponsored again by the Happy Little Stampers Store
and the winner will receive this fabulous, really useful stamp set ......
So what are you waiting for ........ here's a little bit of inspiration to get you started
I love these little guys and they're perfect for paper piecing. The stamp is by Clarity and comes with some pretty little flowers which I haven't used here .... and there's also a set of pre-cut masks too which are really useful.
I stamped the image across my card, and then stamped the birds again, this time onto a sheet of patterned paper.
This is a great technique for using up all those scraps of paper that we all
I found this lovely paper with music notes on which I thought was perfect for the birds .....
It had a whole mix of colour on the one piece so it was easy to get each bird a different shade
I added a touch of colour to the branch with some watercolour pencils and stamped the words underneath ...... they're actually from a set of JOFY stamps but again perfect to go with my birds
I finished off by adding a few ink splatters here and there and of course a little something on the inside ....
This was actually made with someone in mind ...... yes I confess, I forgot a birthday .... shame on me! I'm all forgiven though .... she loved her card (phew!)
Now it's your turn ...... have fun paper piecing. I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
Thanks for popping by ....... enjoy the rest of your day. There's a nice glass of something chilled that's got my name on it I think ....... the weekend starts here!
Cheerio until next time
