Mo's Digital Challenge No 41 - 22/7/10
Over at Mo's Digital Challenge the topic this week is "paper piecing". I like doing paper piecing so I had to take part. The dilemma though was what gorgeous images to use. I chose this little angel and have made her into a Christmas card. I have some mounts with Coredinations cardstock and have used a piece of Basic Grey paper that I got in the recent Simon Says Stamp Christmas in July candy giveaway. I've got various Basic Grey paper pads but never knew that they did two sided paper - I know "where have I been?" - but the only problem is that I didn't know whether to use this checked side or the snowflakes. I decided the checks but in hindsight I should have done the mounts smaller to show more of this gorgeous paper. I added some lace, card candy, ticket sentiment and did some faux stitching. The image I coloured with promarkers and the the angel's dress is from a Crafty Ann's digi paper. The only thing I did wrong was that I printed two images side-by-side to use up the paper better and therefore didn't have enough space to cut an area around each so had to cut the image out - not normally a problem - but I'd already paper pieced the image so it was quite difficult. The moral is cut out first!!!
