Yahoo for paper piecing!! This week, the challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie is all about paper piecing – a fussy cutter’s dream technique!
For this little creation, I teamed up Lucas from the Totally Tubular stamp set with some fun paper from Trinity Paper Arts (unfortunately, a company that is no longer around). To create a bit of definition on Lucas, I paper pieced his shorts out of coordinating paper and then glued them on top of the stamped image. I also cut off his legs under the tube (don’t worry, no little boys were actually hurt in the making of this card), so I could adhere the tube and upper body with foam squares so they would be slightly raised. I love the effect, and it really was a lot easier than it sounds!
So, try your hand at paper piecing this week, and then link up your creation over at Kraftin’ Kimmie’s blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
