Paper Piecing with Clare

Hi and a big welcome to the Sarah Hurley 365 Blog.

Whether you are a paper piecing addict or some who hasn't never tried it and would like to Sarah has the perfect range., her girl stamps. I am showcasing the DREAM A LITTLE DREAM  and BE AMAZING (eyes only)stamp set...really love this!

So first of all I had a rummage through my scrap paper box and choose the following. I have to confess I am rather drawn to the bright colours and patterns on these ones. They have all came from various 'A FEW OF MT FAVOURITE THINGS' kits.

I stamped the girl image onto white card

The sentiment was also stamped onto white card the matted and layered onto patterned paper

I then stamped the girl again, this time onto patterned paper and I also stamped one of the hats from the set. Both were then cut out and 3D foam squares were popped onto the back for dimension.

I then made some embellishments, some were cut by hand, others were by punch or a created using die and my bigshot.

I didn't want any white showing underneath the paper piece so I decided to colour it in. I used a turquoise PROMARKER which was just perfect. I also coloured her shoes in the same colour. The hair was coloured again using PROMARKERS (cinnamon, caramel & sandstone). Using light fawn FLEXI MARKER I coloured in her skin.

It was now time to add the paper piece.

I spent a little time moving all the bits and pieces around the paper and here is the final result.
