Penny Black Paper Piecing


This was a bit of experiment I like but whether I would actually give it to someone maybe not. First of all I was sort of inspired by a Splitcoaststampers card sketch which is why I've torn patterned paper across the page.
The papers are Yesterday by Carta Bella and I used the Penny Black Divine stamp on the papers so I could paper pieced the flower heads. I was quite please how the patterned paper worked, a complete fluke.
My centre panel I used an Impression Obsession French text stamp with a Crafter Workshop Harlequin stencil made some greenish diamonds and a lot of inking round all the edges all the pieces of card including the flowers, butterflies etc.
I actually stamped the Penny Black stamp on my patterned card and white card in situ so the stems would just follow on. Any bits it missed was added in with a black pen.
My Butterflies are Simon says Stamp Butterflies friends had I added the antennas with a pen. The sentiment again the word die is from Simon Say Stamp.
My bags are packed and I'm off to an all day crop, I have my Hubby 60th Birthday photos and plan to make a CAS album for him. It will be interesting how CAS it will be!!!!!!

These paper pieced poppies are delightful Debby and the dramatic harlequin background suits it beautifully and the pretty layered butterflies and large sentiment are gorgeous finishing touches. As for not sending it to anyone, I would adore to have this card so you can always send it to me ..lol. I hope you enjoyed your crop. x
