ABNH Paper Piecing Challenge

Hi! Today I am here with a card that I created for the new A Blog Named Hero February 1st challenge. This challenge is all about Paper Piecing!




I love paper piecing. I find it so relaxing. Hero Arts has great images for paper piecing too. I had a hard time choosing but I finally settled on these poppies. Here is my card:


I started by choosing some Echo Park papers. I stamped my image onto the script paper, then I stamped the image again on the red paper and the yellow paper and then cut them out. To add dimension to the poppies I used some Copics to highlight them. I pop dotted each piece before I attached it. I colored the stems in with Copics.

Now it's your turn! Go create a paper piecing of your choice. Remember each card gets you and entry to win a $25 Gift Certificate from our wonderful Sponsor Simon Says Stamp.


I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Tis has to be one of the prettiest cards made with this stamp that I have seen. Gorgeous! I have paper pieced it myself many times but never thought to use more than one colour of poppy but it is such a great look.
