Paper Piecing and Cussing Creatively

Happy Saturday!

The challenge this week at Flutter By Wednesday is to paper-piece your image. Obviously, whoever thought this one up doesn't wear bifocals. (LOL - sort of.) I did like how the color worked out on my fairy (from MelJen Designs). As much as I love my digi stamps, I have found their shortcomings this week. One, you can't always easily stamp under an image for details (like for BF antennae, here, it's the curlicue at the end of the stick she's using to hold up her lamp). Two, you'd better save the file on which you sized the image, because if you don't and you're paper piecing, you'll never get them to match up again. Oh, well. At least I learned a few things. :P

The font is Lavender (from SNF, I think) and I used a MS punch for the edge. The middle's a Nestie Labels Four. Paper is Sarah Griffin. (Last night's post was wrong. Good thing I looked.)

This is also for the challenges at Get Sketchy and the Cupcake Challenge at Hope Stamps Eternal (Zowie colors.)

Shoestring alert! - Sadly, Hope Stamps Eternal is closing her web store. She's running a sale - everything is 45% off!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
