Paper piecing is something I do once in awhile, but mostly my printed papers are just to admire & not to use--LOL! Melissa's video for PTI MIM inspired me to actually make use of some papers. Her technique of using several papers for a single flower gave a look I'd never seen & really liked. Decided to try it with an old DCWV Matstack. I don't have a PTI flower stamp that would work, so pulled out the butterfly from PTI Quilled Elegance & began by stamping it on the blue dotted paper using VersaMagic Sahara Sand. Then I stamped it with the same ink on the other papers. I almost gave up since the sections are so small, but in the end it was worth it. I really like the patchwork effect & now I want to try it with some other stamps--especially bigger images! The frame is made with a Spellbinders circle & lacy circle & is mounted with foam tape. Tiny blue pearls & Stickles embellish the butterfly. The sentiment is from PTI Tag-Its 3 & is also stamped in the Sahara Sand. Simple, feminine, CAS card--just right for a girlfriend. I'm also entering the current challenge at A Passion for Papertrey--inspired by nature. Almost a holiday weekend here in the USA. Wishing you good times wherever you are & thanks for stopping by.
Edited to add: Qualifies for A Blog Named Hero challenge, so also entering this card there.
