Me and my Shadow - Spoonful of Sugar Challenge


Our challenge this week is

Paper Piecing

We have a fabulous prize for one lucky person the cute High Hopes stamp "Love Birds" which has been kindly donated by Bryony owner of Silly Monkey Crafts.

We also have a fabulous guest designer with us this week the very talented and lovely
Chris from Sketching Stamper I am so pleased she agreed to join us as I have loved her work for ages. To join in the challenge and be in for a chance to win the lovely stamp just click HERE


I haven't done any Paper Pieceing for ages, and really got carried away with this one. (Can anyone help me, I bought a set of these lovely little stamps and I cannot remember who they are by) her dress, ribbon in her hair, shoes and teddy have all been pieced, and I used the same papers for the card. Do you like her little pearl necklace. She has been 3d on white and pink card cut with the Labels Nesties.


Here is the inside, the same papers have been used, I used a Fisers punch on the corners, and of course my beloved MSDP, the flowers and buttons are from stash.




Thanks for looking
Hugs

Hi Jacqui
The card is so cute and the paper piecing is lovely.
The stamp is by Alota and they have about 9 of these gorgeous stamps on a sheet of unmounted rubba!
