Paper Piecing at Sweet Stampin'


Good morning sweeties! We have a new lovely challenge at Sweet Stampin'; paper piecing. Just remember to stamp, rubber or digi. I've paper pieced the Mermaid's tail with the background paper, I added some doodling to add some interest. Please check our blog to see the teams gorgeous cards and to see the awesome prize from Crafts and Me.



Challenges:
Cute Card Thursday: Something Shiny (the Stickles and doodling)


Materials used:
The background was made with Alco inks and watercolour paper by the Floating ink technique, it's so easy and fun if you like me, do like to play with colours. Andy Skinner has made a lovely tutorial.

The super sweet image is a free digi stamp from A day for daisies, it was coloured with Promarkers, the doodling was made with a aqua green metallic Sakura pen, I also added some Stickles.

The image was cut out with a Spellbinder label die.


Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! Hope you'll have a wonderful relaxing and crafty weekend, enjoy.

Love and hugs
Maarit
