Jody and Joanne have challenged us to Paper Piece. I DO love paper piecing and in fact for those that struggle... check out THIS post on Joanne's blog for a video of how to's!!!! I am using a retired stamp ( :( ) but... it is one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES EVER!!!! Amanda Baird just REALLY hits me in the gut. You will recognize her name as the A La Mode maker... yes, those sassy girlies!!!! ;) Anyway, I stamped Dance the Night Away onto a Cream MFT Perfect Paper Panel. Her skin and hair were colored with Copic markers. I then stamped the dress portion 3 times on gold shimmer paper. The dress was cut out completely, then just the skirt and THEN just the highest twirlie skirt part. I stamped that in Gray ink and heat embossed as the shimmer paper didn't really like ink being on it! ;) I took some SUPER itty bitty pearls and decorated the edge of the bodice with the pearls. Now it was time to conquer the gloves... yes, it was tough, but I CONQUERED!!!!! . Some glitter ink, glaze ink were applied to the shoes, lips and gloves... well, just glaze to the lips! ;)
You can see the new Skyline Die Namic underneath the image, Graphic 45 DP and May Arts Ribbon.
I wanted to give ya a quick heads up... MFT is having a SALE!!!!! ;) Hurry.....
