Stamp Fairy Challenge - Monday 17 January 2011

Over at the Stamp Fairy Challenge the topic this week is paper piecing.  I love paper piecing so it would have been rude not to have a go.  I have used a little image of Kasi - ahhhhhhh - and have printed off onto some dots backing paper from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop.  I have then printed the image out again onto a lighter dotted brown and cut out Kasi's paws, nose and ears and decoupaged them up.  I have cut the image with my Nestabilities and chalk inked the edges.  For some reason I decided to put googly eyes on Kasi - what a nightmare - I could barely see the eyes let alone pick them up and stick them on but I got there in the end!!!  The card is then mounted onto two papers from Bearly Mine (I printed these off onto card so the outside piece I could distress with my Tim Holtz's distressing tool and then used a chalk ink on the edges), a piece of card embossed with script and another Nestabilities mount.  The card is then finished off with some fibres, sequin flowers and sentiment off the computer.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Kasi has never looked better than here on your card Kym! I think he's thanking for the effort in giving him googly eyes too - LOL! I'm so intrigued by that sparkly holographic-looking paper behind him - it's very pretty. Great job with the challenge! Thanks for playing with us at StampFairy. Hope you'll return again next time too!
