This week is Wild Card Week over at Just Us Girls, and I am the host. Since it's the fifth Saturday of the month, I get to choose the topic for our challenge. I have chosen the technique PAPER PIECING. For this technique a portion of an image is usually stamped on patterned paper, fussy cut, and adhered to the original image for a patterned look.
Here's my example:
Here I chose to stamp and fussy the dress on this image. I used the same patterned paper as the background. I colored her with Copics and used Stickles on the sun and Pearl Nuvo Crystal Drops for embellishment. The image is from the GKD Sunkissed Autumn Kit, and unfortunately it is retired.
Here are the Ingredients:
Sunkissed Autumn Stamps
SU Island Indigo Card Stock
GKD White Card Stock
HOTP Pretty Little Posies Patterned Paper
Die-namics Delicate Doily Die
SU Balloon Pop Up Die for Ribbon
Nuvo Crystal Drops
