AI - Paper Piecing Party! Challenge 176
I stepped through the tutorial that Diane on the AI design team posted, and I thought I would give it a try. Paper piecing involves a lot more cutting and a lot less coloring.
I just love all the Art Impressions Girlfriends stamps. I have almost all of them!! For this card, I used Art Impressions Stamp Uptown Girls Set. Then I just used the simple sentiment of "Friends" from the Live Laugh Love set.
For each of the girls outfits I used paper from my stash. I colored their skin & hair with Copic Markers. I colored the girl's jewelry, glass frames, and shoes with Wink of Stella coloring pens to add little more glitz to match their glitzy outfits.
I had a pink feather that I received in a grab bag, and I had saved it "just in case". I decided to cut a few pieces of the feather to add some textured to the first girl's boa. Also for the big flower on her dress, what better to use then a flower embellishment from my stash.
I had a lot of fun picking out the papers I wanted to make their outfits. It was like playing paper dolls!
Thanks for stopping by! Any comments and advice are always greatly appreciated!!
Have a wonderful day!
ADDITIONAL NOTE: I was honored to receive the Top Spot in the AI Paper Piecing Challenge with this card. I'm so excited I just can't stop smiling. Thank you Art Impressions!!!
