In Pieces........

Apologies for the quality of the picture (it was taken on one of those dayswhen we nevver seem to see any daylight) but I wanted to show a card today that uses paper piecing.
This cute little stamp is from Stamping's one that I have had for ages but, for one reason or another, never quite got round to using.
I needed to make this card in a bit of a hurry, so I decided to save a bit of time on colouring by doing a bit of ppr piecing instead. Who knew that it would take me longer to cut out the fiddly bits than to do the colouring! Her dress, under skirt and handbag have all been cit from the background papers. Here's her close up..........


Of course the rest of her is coloured with my trusty promarkers.

I couldn't let this one go without entering a few challenges, so here they are:

A Gem of a Challenge - Paer Piecing
I Love Promarkwes - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge - Clear it Out

Sorry about the terrible spelling on the links - I am sure you get the idea anyway!
