I finally tried to do paper piecing. I had always liked the way it looked, but I was always too lazy to try it. Well, the concept is simple, and the execution is not as difficult as I thought (click here to see the SCS tutorial). So, I plan to do more of this when I have good images to try it on. Meanwhile, I was so into the whole thing that I decided to do some out-of-the-box stuff and stippling and piercing too! I kinda liked how it looked, too. So without further ado, here's the card:
Isn't he just so fun?? His jacket uses the DP, as you can see, and I think it really adds to the appeal of this card. And though I did the paper piercing in the corner, it just didnt' have enough emphasis, so I went in with a Stampin' Write marker (FINE tip end) and touched each hole so that it was more black. It totally made the difference.
Colors: Tangerine Tango, Certainly Celery
Paper: SU! DP series "Sarah"
Other: Stipple brush, dimensionals
I hope you like it!
