Hello Ai Fans !!
When I saw we were going to do this challenge , I knew just the stamp I wanted to use , one that would need lots of piecing , these couch girlfriends are awesome and perfect for the challenge !!Next you need a very sharp pair of scissors ( I used Cutter Bees ..love them )and the next tip is to kind very small pattern paper so it looks right on the images , the 6″ by 6″ paper packs are perfect for this and paper coordinated nicely .
I started by stamping my image with Memento ink and i chose my small print pattern paper (My Minds eye ..Lost and Found collection in Bush )
next you stamp the image in the pattern paper and and fussy cut the place you want this pattern
starting to come together , I also color my image with copic markers and start gluing down
these are the markers I used ..another tip to make the paper piecing pop shade the pieces to create shadow , I used RV11 to shade where they cross legs and sit next to each other , they don’t run together when you add this touch to them )
next i used my oval die to cut out the image , i did not want any of the image cut off so I fussy cut those places and have them on top of the die when running thru the Big Shot , these areas will not cut off now
next I punch paper to make paper lace to go behind my cut because I don’t have a die in a bigger oval to mat it , add score tape and run paper thru a crimper and then hand gather on the score tape , I then add more score tape to the top of the lace and add another oval over the back to give a finished look and secure the lace ( no one can see but I know it’s there and done right )
Thanks for stopping by to see how I created this little piece of art , please leave a commit if this post was helpful ,I would love to hear from you .
