Paper Piecing

Phew!!!!! lot of cutting  and piecing. Be a guest designer for Flourishes!!! oh what a treat so thought of doing something different to give an extra oompf...... hope the my card is able to portray it. I am entering this card in the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge FTTC240 details of which can be found here .

For my card I cut out spellbinders fancy lattice in four colors, blue, red, yellow and green and then pieced it together to come up with a different design. It did take me a while to decide on the design..but this paper piecing technique has so many different options and you can come up with so many designs to give your card a unique look with just one die.

Once my background was ready, I moved to my stamped image, this one is from flourishes “tulips for friends” stamp set…….isn’t it such a cute image. I used copic markers to color it. Honestly I am going nuts over the deep red shade I got in the flowers………this girl loves red. I had invested in copic markers after I read all the raving reviews and of course they did not disappoint. I would like to try some other alcohol markers too, as I love experimenting with new products maybe will put them on my birthday gift list. Is it just me or seems like I have a lot of different wish lists going on. After my image was ready, I fussy cut it and popped on spellbinders gold circle die. Popped my circle die on the background paper towards the edge so I can show off the hardwork on the background. I think the card came together nicely……..

Hope I did justice to the card with the pictures. Thanks for stopping by.......
