Enjoying the lovely weather (not), well, nothing for it to stay home and
The challenge this week over at Less is More is to "paper piece". I quite enjoy paper piecing, it's exactly the same principle as doing applique - cut out the different pieces in paper/fabric and adhere with glue/bond-a-web!
So this week's challenge didn't really faze me but I did have to search through all my stamps four times until I decided on the stamp to use and of course I didn't use StazOn on the metallic paper and ended up with black smudges all over the place and had to completely start again! Anyway, here's my card ...
Whilst on holiday in Malaysia last year, I came across a Japanese pound store. Wow, it was fab and I bought heaps of stuff, although I'm embarrassed to say there's lots of it I haven't used yet - including some packs of Japanese paper, which is what I've used here. The stamp is by Personal Impressions. I coloured the teapot and did a bit of 'ground shading' with promarkers.
My card also fits with the challenge over at the DYSU blog (my first time of entering here) which is "Inspired by a Movie". I've gone for Memoirs of a Geisha, based on the fab book by Arthur Golden. My last post would also have fitted with this challenge (thanks Diane) but I'd posted it before the challenge was announced, very spooky.
Okay, a bit too much waffling from me today. Have a great week everyone and thanks for dropping by.
