Paper Piecing Technique
The challenge today on 365 #115, was titled "Piece It Together".
Paper Piecing is a great way to change up the stamp image that you have and incorporate different colors into your project.
Using my new stamp set from Verve "up up and away", gave me the perfect opportunity to do piecing. First, I stamped the smaller balloon on top and to the left for balance. Then, using a coordinating paper (the is the Alyssa line from BoBunny), I stamped the image again, and cut out the balloon- see my tiny mistake on the bottom? didn't quite get all of the balloon when I stamped on the EDGE by mistake! Anywhoooo, using a larger balloon, stamped in center, on the right, then again on striped paper. Cut it out and both balloons are pop dotted with 3d foam.
I love the flower paper in the line, reminds me of fluffy clouds, and the reverse image on this sheet, made for great mountains. Actually, the more I look at this card, it reminds me of the Sound of Music! p.s. I have NEVER watched this movie.....it is banned by DH!
Maybe you can tell me about it??????
