Hi there, crafty peeps!!!
I'm back with a SUPER YUMMY card and 3 challenges!!!
(There's even a surprise at the end!)
This week I have been baking, I mean stamping, in my craft room & I have a tasty treat for you!!
It's my "Rainy Day Fhiona" cookie!!
My inspiration for this card came from the picture chosen by YNS for Tasty Tuesday. The colors, the sweetness of the image, & of course, the cookie shape! I needed a FAB sketch to go with my circle idea and I was lucky to find this amazing sketch from Karen @ The Sweetest Thing ~~Sweet Sunday #182. What's the sweetest thing this Sunday, you ask? Hopefully, it's my yummy cookie!!! ;)
Pink Elephant #195 was showcasing paper piecing and I knew that I would be paper piecing her outfit & umbrella from some patterned paper. It was a match made in HEAVEN, I mean my oven, I mean my craft room. :) :) :)
Can you see that I am excited about this?!!? LOL
I love when all of the pieces fall into place ~~ paper pieces, that is!! ;)
Fhiona reminds me so much of my younger daughter, I just love working with her image! I could look at her all day long!! :) :) You can capture her cuteness right here: YNS site
Here is the link to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge
Isn't she just precious in her matchy-matchy Gymboree inspired ensemble?? I love aqua, icy blue & brown together so when I saw the tasty inspiration photo, I knew that I had to play along!!!
Sweet image, check!
Great sketch, check!
NOW ON TO THE PAPER PIECING...
These are the things that I paper pieced over the stamped image that was colored with copics.
Layer 1 ~~ Raincoat, boots, umbrella base, headband
Layer 2 ~~Umbrella handle, umbrella panels, & the star on headband,
pockets, collar, & wrist patches on raincoat
Layer 3 ~~ her right hand over the umbrella handle!
OMGeeee, that's a LOT of tiny!!
I also decided to finish the inside of the card...
Are you ready to take a peek...?
You are about to ask yourself... Did she paper piece that mini Fhiona, too?!?
You can bet your bottom dollar that I did!!! :) :) :)
