BasicGrey Challenge #31
This week on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog, we are paper piecing something which I love to do but don't do often enough.
It was Fizzy's 2nd birthday on Easter Sunday and so this was the card I made for her and decided to use it for this week's challenge too.
The base card is a Papermania scalloped card.
The patterned papers are BasicGrey Urban Prairie and Papermania Retro Floral.
The punch I used was a Martha Stewart doiley punch.
The image is by The Greetings Farm and is "Rock the Farm" Anya. Her hat, scarf and bows have been paper pieced with BasicGrey Urban Prairie and her hair, skin, trousers and buckets have been coloured with Promarkers.
I cut a butterfly from a piece of the backing paper and stuck it on with some dimension pads.
The number 2 is from a box of chipboard numbers I bought from The Papermillshop and I covered this in some BasicGrey Urban Prairie paper and rubbed distress ink around the edges.
I wanted some flowers on my card but didn't want to cover up the beautiful pattern of the backing paper and so punched some flowers out from a piece of acetate with my retro flower punch, covered them in glossy accents and then sprinkled them with Twinklets diamond dust and added a Zoom to the centre. If you click on the photo to zoom in you should see them all twinkly.
Please go and have a look at the DT's creations, they are amazing yet again and it was such a great challenge this week. I look forward to seeing your creations.
