Just Magnolia Challenge # 9 Paper Piecing!


Are your eyes hurting from the bright flower pattern of my DP yet? Smiley from millan.net I was so into my paper piecing project for Just Magnolia and probably over did it but what the heck....it was fun! Smiley from millan.net To give a bit of color contrast, I stamped the lady bug on some red DP, trimmed and lightly glued the shell on top of the original image. I also added Liquid Glass to the lady bugs shell and Tilda's boots.



Tilda is colored in with Copic Markers. All of my DP is from SU's Pacific Point. To embellish my card, I applied flowers and half pearls. I also used my my corner punch (upper left corner mat) and 3/8 inch circle punch for the sentiment. The sentiment is from TAC.




I'm going to bring this post to a close, I have a lot to do today. Smiley from millan.net The kids are having company and therefore, we have some cleaning to do before their guest arrive. Have a great day and thank you all so much for stopping by!

hugs

This is so pretty! Look at all the details! Paper piecing, flowers, punches, pearls, coloring...you are amazing. I love the way you color the Tilda's...so realistic and not over done. Mine tend to come out kind of orange or peach toned. You're the bomb!
