House Mouse & Friends............Paper Piecing !!!


Our very talented Dorte Kvist is hosting next and has chosen this super FUN theme;

~Paper Piecing~ 

Papercraft paper piecing is;  cutting pieces out from a design and layering them on paper. This is a versatile technique and easily adapted. Rubber stamps designs are often used for paper piecing projects. A design can be stamped several times on a piece of paper and then these can be cut and adhered to a project. See Paper Piecing for a step by step guide to this technique.

ALL challenges have the alternate option of *ANYTHING GOES* too!  So come PLAY ALONG with us and enter your projects using stamps, CD images or decoupage by;

I'm set posting this card today and still late!!! I've been having a problem of uploading Inlinkz - is me, is it just the story of my life ??? I've Iinkzed as much as possible and add as possible as the rest.
This is one of my very farouite little Christmas mousies and is called 'Stocking Full of Love'. The papers are some I found I was sorting out my box - I used the as them as the background and the rest to piece the stocking although you struggle to see them as I have added Copics to shade them.
The Holly die is from Penny Black but suspect they have been retired as I can't find a like for them anywhere. I use Simon Says Stamp Ink Carabbean Blue for the background, snowflakes are from Impression Obsession and Simon Says Stamps Kate die
The snow Aleene's Glitter Snow and sprinkled with Hero Arts Ultra fine Glitter. I stamped the sentiment from Simons Kit onto vellum and embossed.

I can totally understand why this is amongst your favorite images, it's really sweet! You've created a great snowy texture on your card, and the broad white space around your scene gives this embellished card also a nice clean feel.
