Lawnscaping challenge #4 ~ Paper Piecing
When I saw these lanterns on sneak preview, I knew I had to have them! This is my first stamp set I ordered on the RELEASE DAY! Yes, I LUV these lanterns, and seriously, these stamps & paper piercing are Addictive! LOL!! This is my first card. If time allows, I might make more, and if not for this challenge, i'll still be making more cards with these lanterns!! Lanterns remind me of my life in Guam, Hawaii, and another place (I won't reveal here yet!) a lot! Maybe Guam & Hawaii have lots of Asian influence. These were introduced this month because of the inspiration from Chinese New Year, according to the owner of Lawn Fawn. I chose "tropical island" themed papers for paper piecing. I used baker's twine for strings. Wave & sand stamps are Old CTMH. I watercolored the waves. I sponged the white CS with the light blue dye ink. One leave, lanterns and sentiment were attached with dimentional foams. I luv making Tropical feeling cards! Those always make me happy while I'm making them! :-) The challenge details are found at here.
