Paper Piecing Birthday



(You can always click on the picture for a close up look)

Hello and Happy Sunday! I haven't had much time to stamp lately so this morning I put the girls on auto drive and snuck into my craft room for an hour. I wanted to start on one of my Swaps that my friend Kash is hosting on SCS. It calls for paper piecing on your card. I chose a very neglected Rubber Romance stamp. I love this image and it's perfect for paper piecing! I stamped it first on some green SU patterned paper, then some Chatterbox Patterned Paper. I used my newly acquired Copics (wahoo!) and I made her legs and dress 3-D. At the last moment I decided to try and make the ribbon on the image a real life ribbon. What a fit that gave me!! I'm not sure if I like the final look of it though. And I'm quite certain that only the Hostess will be getting this Special Edition card. ;)

Stamps: Rubber Romance, PTI Damask Design & Faux Ribbon
Ink: Versafine Black & Sepia, PTI Sweet Blush
Paper: SU Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, SU Print Packs in Wasabi, Chatterbox Patterned Paper, PTI White
