Going to Paper Pieces

I'm back with my second post of the day......this time on the theme of paper piecing.

For once I have used something other than alcohol pens........and gone with my water colour pencils and Lyras instead. I had such fun with these preparing for my demo day at Stamp Addicts, a few weeks ago, that I decided I must get them out and dust them off more often. Perhaps it should be my New Year's Resolution!

Anyway - back to the card. This one is made using one of my many Mimi stamps and I have kept it very clean and simple, using one of the backing papers to paper piece the car......I guess I was going for that VW Beetle sort of effect. I've also added a few Polka Doodles dew drops as a bit of embellishment and I am quite surprised to say that you can actually see them on this picture!!

On with the challenges now. Here are the ones that I am entering....
