Today I am sharing a technique I haven’t used in quite awhile. An old friend of mine brought it to my attention. She had just finished a whole series of paper pieced cards so I thought I would create one of my own.
The base card is Granny Apple Green followed by a piece of retired DSP. In fact I used retired DSP for all of the pieces on the image. I chose the image from Good Morning Magnolia. It is easiest to paper piece a larger image. I chose three different paper designs in the same color family. I stamped the image on each of the papers and then fussy cut three different sections of the image. I then stamped the image on Whisper White CS with Memento Black ink. I did sponge So Saffron on the background first. I put the puzzle back together by laying the pieces over the stamped image. I colored the stem with Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I used Liquid Glue to adhere the pieces to the image. I absolutely love how this turned out. I’ll be doing more of this soon. It realy is a fun technique. I hope you give it a try.
PAWS TO PONDER
Hugs and happy stamping, MB
