I worked on a card last night for this week's Make it Monday challenge: Paper Piecing. I have several beautiful line art images that are perfect for coloring, but my coloring is, well, lacking in some areas. I can do some blending but sometimes it's easier to stamp on some pretty patterned paper and fussy cut them images. Which is what I did here, using Papertrey Ink's Strawberry Patch stamp set. A neglected, but oh so pretty, strawberry building set. I stamped onto Ripe Avocado, Melon Berry, and Pure Poppy bitty dot patterned paper using Archival black ink. I used black enamel on the "seeds" of the strawberries, giving them a more realistic look:
(Supplies - Stamps: (Papertrey Ink) Strawberry Patch, Label Basics. Ink: (Ranger) Archival Black. (Stampin' Up!) Groovy Guava. (Papertrey Ink) Pure Poppy. Patterned Paper: (Papertrey Ink) Ripe Avocado, Melon Berry, and Pure Poppy Patterns Packs. Cardstock: (Papertrey Ink) Rustic White, Melon Berry. Dies: (PTI) Label Basics, Other: Buttons, ribbon, gems, enamel, white thread.)
I stamped the large strawberry images onto rustic white cardstock, then again onto the three different patterned papers. After I cut out the individual strawberries, stems, leaves, and flowers, I layered them over the stamped image. I really do love this set, and after working with it last night I need to remember to pull it out more often!
I hope everyone has a great week. We are off to the park this afternoon. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
