Simon Says Challenge - Paper Piecing!
I luv Paper Piecing! So much Fun! BUT my stamps are very limited to do good paper piecing, esp. the companies Simon Says carries. This is the stamp i chose. It's Penny Black. I'm not sure you can tell all which i did paperpiercing, from this pic. Well, the largest part is the table cloth. I matched with the backgrond paper. Others?? All 5 Gift Bags! oh my! Those were very small to cut out! For christmas tree border, i used a piece of Silky Red Ribbon underneath, to give a bit of soft, but shiny look instead of regular card stock. I used my fav.! Sakura Quick Glue pen to draw the edge of the circle cut out with the sentiment, red-glittered it! I drew the silver earrings & the necklace for a blond girl, and gold earrings & the necklace for brown hair girl, using gel pens. This stamp wasn't meant for Christmas time, which i can tell from the original coloring but when i started to paperpierce them, i found more Christmas design & color papers which fitted well. As usual??, i used 3D glue dots for sentiment & the main image, but used thicker ones for the main image.
