I chose Distressing - Flowers - Paper Piecing
I did the paper piecing first. This is so fun, brings out the child and paper dolls for me :0) I used one of my new Hanglars, one cuz she hadn't been inked up yet, and two cuz she is larger and more fun to "dress up" I then cut out her feet and the bottom of her dress, and ran it through with a circle Nestie to cut the rest out. Sort of as if she is sitting in the bottom of the circle. OH .. and the rest is colored with my Copics -
For my card I went with October Afternoon papers again. I just am so in love with these papers!! I distressed everything on the edges and then inked them, and sewed down to a dark brown card stock mat. I also used a Papertrey Ink satin ribbon... hmm wonder if that broke the rules using ribbon too? Uh OH.. may get a slap on the hand for it, but I do love it :0)
So I have the Distressing, and she is Paper Pieced ... so that leaves my flowers!
Love them!!! Ok, so I have had the two Martha Stewart Hydrangea punches FOREVER - the one larger flower, and then the three smaller in one punch. Got them on clearance ages ago. I don't think I have ever really used them. Well.. I will now! Look how awesome these came out. I used Core'dinations card stock and sanded the edges and folded the petals up. Then attached small pearls for the centers. A few MS Branch punches for the leaves and I totally really love these! So need to use my stash more!
Now you go and play with the Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge! Too fun this week... and GREAT prizes!!!
