It's another Timeless Tuesday Challenge
and this one was so much fun! One of the requirements was to do some paper piecing
, not to be confused with paper piercing, two very different techniques. What's more, those who enter have a chance to become a Guest Designer
. Now that would be beyond exciting! All you have to do is follow the challenge specifics to be considered.
For my card, I used one of the images from the Garden Fairies
stamp set. The main image was stamped on Classic White
card stock using Tuxedo Black
ink. I used colored pencils for the grass and flower stem. Each segment I paper pieced used a different patterned paper for the flower, the dress, the wings and the butterfly. The image didn't stamp well on the silver glitter paper, so I used a black colored pencil to show the detail in her wings as well as on the butterfly.
I added the sentiment to the inside of the card because I wanted the image to be the focal point of the card.

This stamp set is one of my favorites. I loved reading about fairies and fairy tales when I was a girl. And, yes, I still believe in fairy tales!
Until next time...happy creating!
