So here is my take on Paper Piecing

 

Very simple paper piecing, well very simple cutting! The stamp is from the Bunting Builder  set of Francoise which I have turned into a Christmas tree.

Tree

Normally when I do paper piecing I would use glue but i thought that the tree would benefit from a touch of dimension. So i used double sided tape at the top, and two thicknesses of  sticky fixes.

I have used  two colours of plain green card, and stamped the bunting and then used a Jumbo Rollagraph and rolled a pattern over the stamped shape. I then cut it into the three shapes and put them back together scrambled.

For the background I used the Rollagraph and the Watermark Cartridge and rolled it all over the rad card, then added Metallic F/X in Gold Dust all over the card. The bow stamp is from Francoise’s  Patch a Bauble Clear Magic set, I have coloured it with the Sakura Clear Star Dust gel pen.

I think that here you can see the levels.

I got carried away stamping these, so still have some spares, but I quite like this card that I managed to finish.

I rather like the tartan ribbon.

The stamp is a Jane Gill design Christmas Sentiments.
