The Timeless Tuesday Challenge at Flourishes, this week is paper piecing. This is a fun technique, that I have been wanting to try. I choose the Poinsettia and Boxwood stamp set, and the sentiment is from Christmas Classic. All of these stamps can be found at Flourishes. I used paper from the Bo Bunny Rejoice Collections. I stamped the images on 3 different papers, and then started cutting out from 2 of the papers. You will glue the cut out pieces onto the image and continue until you have covered the entire image.
This is what the image looks like once you have added all the cut pieces!
I used a technique from SNS called Lacey Background, the result are just stunning. I used Fire Engine Red Glitter and Reflection Glitter to create the background. Make sure to view the tutorial it is really a pretty addition to any project!! Photos do not show the true sparkle of the background. Hope you can see how much sparkle there is!
To give the petals of the Poinsettia some sparkle I used Stardust Stickles. You can never how to much "Sparkle"
This was a very interesting challenge and gave me a new technique I know I will use often.
For the sentiment I used the Sizzix Funky Labels, using the largest and the next size. I layered them together and cut them out. Using glue I added sparkle to the smaller label.
There will be a "Special Contest" this week and you could have a chance to be a Guest Designer!!!
