Something Different....


I really like how paper piecing looks. I thought it would be neat to paper piece the butterfly from garden whimsy. Here's the problem - that's a solid stamp. I couldn't figure out how to do it since it was a solid image. So....I inked it in Versamark, stamped on SU! DP, and then lightly colored it with chalk so I could see where to cut. I used different size hole punches to punch out the circles in the butterfly. I went ahead and placed cameo coral paper behind the butterfly. Then I stamped the image in chocolate chip on cameo coral and placed the wings I had cut out on top of the image. I'm no sure what this technique is called, but it seemed to work out. This card is much prettier in person! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!
