This weeks technique challenge is all about paper piecing. Paper piecing is a wonderful way to add color, patterns and depth to your card. To help you learn the art of paper piecing, Tammy has prepared detailed step by step instructions with photos to show you just how quick and easy it is! Thank you, Tammy, for the awesome tutorial and gorgeous card! To see more of Tammy’s beautiful artwork, please visit her blog, My Craft Central and while you are there don’t forget to leave her lots of feedback!
To give everyone an idea of what we will be working on, here is a photo of the finished project. You can see how I’ve added pattterned paper on the hat, top and pants adding lots of color and depth to this card. The same patterned paper was used in each of the accenting circles in the backgound.
Next, stamp the same image again on your patterned paper. I used the same patterned paper for all the elements in this card but you may choose to use more than one. If so, simply stamp the image on each of the patterned papers you are using.
Now you are ready to cut out the parts of the patterned papers you want to add to the finished image.
Attach them to your image using your favorite adhesive. Finish coloring and use to create a beautiful card!
And here are this week’s submissions for this challenge…great work, everyone!
