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.
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.
