And even more excited because I'm the March Guest Designer for Crafty Catz challenge!!! I'm so happy!!! As it is a weekly challenge, I will be bringing you a new creation for Craty Catz every Friday for the next 4 weeks!!! Thank you so much Crafty Catz challenge team for having me! It's a privilege!
This weeks challenge is Paper piecing and it is hosted by Jac
The Sponsor is BUGABOO
So, start making your project with paper-piecing on it, and join Crafty Catz challenge this week!!!
And this is the card I've made!
I used one of the sponsor's images that they kindly donated. It's called "Ava Flower Patch".
The papers I've used are from magazine freebies (polka dot paper). The stripes floral paper is from my stash, I've been for hours trying to find out which paper pad I got it from, and I can't find it! I really should take notes when I make my cards to avoid this... sorry... lesson learnt!
As an extra layer, I used a green fabric frame (similar shape to a Polaroid frame) from Crate Paper Maggie Holmes collection. I think it's meant to be used for scrapbooking, but I saw it and I had to have it! they are 12 different designs on the pack, some with sentiments included, like this one "Enjoy". I added the button from my stash. I love the effect that it gives to the card, a bit different to a normal layer. I used a piece of blue scrap paper from K&company as a background to this frame.
I hand-stitched the bottom layer and horizontal layer with white thread.
To follow this week's challenge theme. I paper-pieced the image's dress and hair bow with a piece of yellow and faded blue polka dots paper.
The rest of the image is coloured with my Promarkers.
I used: Raw Sienna, Sandstone, Buttercup, Vanilla, Almond, blossom, Powder Blue, Cornflower, tulip yellow, leaf green, moss and blender pen.
I inked the edges of the image with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen.
I also placed some gem rhinestones in the flowers and in the punched butterfly.
The "With Love" ribbon is from Hobbycraft.
The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts
The rhinestones gems are from local shop.
