It’s time for a new challenge over at Kitty Bee’s Aloha Friday! Our theme for this challenge is “Scraps” – we want to see at least three different scraps used in your project. Our sponsor was Doodle Garden – the first time I’ve used one of their images, but definitely not the last; they’re so cute and very easy to work with!
On to my card then…. I chose to use Three Cheers for my project – I was looking for an image that would be ideal for paper piecing as I find this is the easiest way to use up the small odds and ends of papers that I can’t bear to throw away! As soon as I saw this cute little girl, I could see her dress paper pieced, along with a matching bow….not to mention the flag!!
I coloured the image with Pro-Markers, then “dressed” her with the dress and bow that I had cut from a scrap of patterned paper from the Hip Hip Hooray Stack by American Crafts – in fact, all the patterned papers on the card are from the same stack, which is my absolute favourite because of the bright, juicy summer colours. I also used scraps for the flowery stripes across the background, the flag and the sentiment.
I based the layout on the current sketch and twist challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. I chose to use the middle row (sentiment, designer paper, flower). The frame and stripes have been popped up on 3D pads to create a little distance between the patterned background and the flowery stripes – might have caused a few migraines otherwise 😉 Unfortunately, I’ve just realised that our challenge goes live after the closing date, so I won’t be able to enter 😦 Never mind, I’m sure I’ll find a couple of other challenges to link up to!!
I look forward to seeing all your scrappy makes over at Kitty Bee’s Aloha Friday Challenge!
