For this card I used paper from the Basic Grey Archaic line and some distressing to create a rustic and country looking peach card.
I first stamp the image on the paper that will be the "canvas" for the piecing. I also stamped the enough times that I have a choice of prints to use. The pieces are then all cut out.
Once I cut the pieces out I start glueing the pieces down. I like to leave the edges without glue so they can be pried up a bit for added dimension.
The leaves were stamped on a plaid paper. I really like to use patterns for most of my paper piecing for added interest.
Once the pieces were glued down I ran the layer through a Spellbinder scalloped oval for the shape. I also added extra leaves to the top of the image and distressed the edges.
This should have been my next step but I just couldn't get the layout to work right.... I kept playing around and still wasn't happy until I had that "aaaaha!" moment and flipped it upside down.
Once I flipped the layers it all came together. I stamped the sentiment and layered it on multiple payers and added a gold organdy ribbon.
I've had soooo much fun being the flourishes Limelight designer. I hope you had fun reading my posts each week and maybe learned a little something. I can't wait to see who's up next!
