Paper Piecing

Freshly Harvested

It’s time for a new challenge at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and this week is……

Paper Piecing.

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter.

I am using a set from The Paper Shelter today called Freshly Harvested.

Here’s what I came up with for my first ever attempt at paper piecing.

I’ve used a mix of the Pre-coloured and line images in my creations and fiddled a little in my picture editing software to achieve my end result.

The background and the plants are the pre-coloured parts I’ve used. These come in a few options but I’ve edited them and combined 2 together. I’ve also created my sentiment in my editing program and added it to my background. I’ve printed the tag section up an additional 2 times to add some layering.

My main image has been printed onto X-Press It Blending Card once and then 3 other times onto 3 different digital papers from the Let’s make a Pic-nic! Paper Pack from The Paper Shelter. I’ve then cut out different parts of the image from the 3 papers for her clothes, scarf and thongs (as us Aussie’s would say) or as others now them, flip flops. I’ve coloured in her skin, hair & basket with my Copic Markers and then layered the paper pieced pieces onto my image. I then fussy cut the image and added the image to the card using Dimensionals to give it a more 3D effect.

The card I kept very simple so the image is the main focus.

Here’s a closer look at the image.

The Copic Markers I’ve used are:

Skin – E00, E000, E0000, R20; Eyes – B95, B93, B91; Hair & Basket – E57, E55, E53, E51; Greenery in Basket – YG95, YG93, YG91.

Supplies:
Card: Mellow Moss (retired SU), Naturals White(SU), X-Press It Blending Card
Accessories: Go Create Die – XXL Square Frames Frilly #8, Dimensionals, Copic Markers.

I hope my card gives you some inspiration to have a go at some Paper Piecing and enter our Loves Rubberstamps challenge.
