Viv would like to see something paper pieced on your project. You could, for example, paper piece a flower, part of your image such as a character's clothing, you could even paper piece an animal image for a funky look.. I am sure you can think of other ideas!
I chose this time a card I made at a recent workshop at In2Crafting, led by the very talented Alexandra Kamann which somewhat fortuitously, featured paper piecing!
This is a technique I haven't used much in the past as my attempts have not been very successful. However, the trick, I have learnt is to have a good stamp....
The base card was a kraft card base, that was 6" square. Onto this, I layered a textured turquoise paper. The sentiment was stamped first, and then snowflakes were stamped all over with versamark ink and embossed with white powder. At the bottom of the sheet, I stuck some double sided adhesive that had been cut into a wavy shape. Ultra fine glitter was then rubbed into it.
The reindeer from Woodware was stamped firstly onto Kraft card and the antlers and hoofs were coloured using a white sakura glaze pen. Then, I stamped the body of the reindeer on a selection of Christmas paper and cut and pieced the body area. Finally (you can't really see it in the photo) I used a silver nail head coloured with red promarker for the nose.
