Hello and Happy Friday. Today the challenge over at SweetNSassy Digi Challenge is to use paper piecing. This is not my forte, but I gave it a try anyway. I have to admit I think I did OK on this one. I guess this is my Rhubarb week. I've done several different cards using Rhubarb. For this card I used Rhubarb Snowy Day image which you can find here.. I colored him with Copics and then I paper pieced the hat and scraf and the it was going pretty good so I also did his little belly, for no other reason other than I thought it looked cute.
I cut him out with a Labels Nine Nestability. I sponged with Bashful Blue ink and traced a line around the edge with a blue Spica Pen. I think I sponged a little too soon because it started to smudge a little bit. I'm going to touch up the smudge marks with some white paint later on today. The designer paper is from DCWV winter Pack. My sentiment is from the Gina K Designs set titled Ready, Set, Snow, and I cut it out using Creative Memories Heart Punch. I used a MS snowflake punch with SU's Shimmery White paper. I decided to make a two tone bow to top it off. I had the Bashful Blue ribbon and I colored a second piece of that with my Copic Marker to achieve the darker toned piece. I Maybe I'll try to do this technique more often. Hope you like this one and thank you so much for taking time to stop by today. See you tomorrow.
