Paper piecing


Over on the Polkadoodles blog, the theme is paper piecing. I have some great animal stamps from Woodware and thought it would be fab for a first birthday card I have to make. So, I paper pieced the monkey, leaves and grass, using 3D foam pads for the paws and nose to add depth. The backing paper is light green, but hasn't come out very well in the photo. I do enjoy this technique, but find it quite time consuming, which isn't good for someone who leaves things until the last minute!

Hi Nikki

I love this.

Such a cute image and your backing paper goes perfectly with it. It almost looks like it is heavily embossed.

Great look.

Love Jules xx
