This week’s theme at Craft Your Passion Challenge is about Paper Piecing. It is being sponsored by AiFactory and Bunny Zoe. You will have a couple chances to win free images and even a chance to join us as a guest design team member. I used the Birds on Branch image from AiFactory for this card.
I love the look of paper piecing. It seems to be a lot of work so I was looking forward to the challenge, but it wasn’t as bad as it looks. Simply stamp or print your image on white paper and again on pattern paper for as many different patterns as you need and then use a really good pair of scissors to cut out your shapes. My Bumble Bee Scissors are perfect for this task. I find these cards are more successful if you don’t make everything into pattern paper.
For this card, I colored the image and the pattern paper pieces with Copic markers. Some of the shapes are pop dotted and others are glued straight down. The green and pink pattern papers both came from my stash so I don’t know where they are from. I finished off the card with a few clear dots and a button along with an EK Success flower punch and a couple hand cut leaves.
