I was so busy I completely forgot to post my project for this week's challenge over at The Technique Twist. This time we are working on 3D Paperpiecing...a fussy, labour intensive technique that we experimented with to find ways to make it a little less daunting. Here is my take on it:
|Thank you card featuring the Blended Bloom and Banner Banter stamp sets|
I added shadows and coloured the centre with Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities. To get the dimension I burnished the wrong side of the layers with a stylus on a piercing mat. It causes the paper to curl ever so slightly...you have to take care not to press too hard when burnishing so as not to tear the paper.
I used a few little In-colour sequins and some Hello Honey stain ribbon to pretty this one up. What's not to love about ribbon and bling??
