I used a yellow Alcohol Ink and a bit of Butterscotch on glossy cs for the background. Then with a felt applicator and a circle stencil, I created some spots here and there. First time for this technique for me and I love the look!
This rather large girl is a stamp called "Chickadee" by Suzi Blu & Unity Stamps. I love Suzi Blu's big girl stamps! I have 2 and I am anxious to try out the other one.
As I've mentioned before, I LOVE paper piecing! I stamped her on the glossy paper after inking background. Then I stamped her on the flowered DP; cut her dress out. Then again on maroon cs; cut her sleeves, bows and collar out. Then again on this textured blue paper twice; cut her wings out. Added lace at the bottom of her dress. Stamped her again on white cs and coloured her face hand and neck with Pebbles chalks. Stamped her again on some brown print paper and again on blue paper for the bird she's holding. Cut out all these pieces and glued everything onto TH Grungepaper except her wings which I just glued straight onto the card.
Added bling paper clip and safety pin TH Tissue Tape, photo corner punch. The flower is done using the print paper I used for her dress. I tore 3 circles from the paper; different sizes. Inked edges with DI Vintage Photo. Added Distress Stickles Rock Candy to stiffen it. Added a red rhinestone in middle. The sentiment stamp is Tim Holtz. The card is a little warped because of the layering, but not too bad. I did apply paper to the inside and the back of the card.
What great fun this was to make! She is off living with Julie now, as Julie picked my name in the card swap. I picked Louise's name and she made a beautiful star fold card in blue, which is her least favourite colour to use. What is your least favourite colour to use?
If you haven't tried paper piecing, give it a go! Lot's of fun and you'll love the results.
