Paper Piecing


I'm doomed to take crooked photos, can you believe that this is a square card and the best of the bad bunch.
This was the card I was going to make for the Everybody Art Challenge but thought the other one I made would be quicker, who was I kidding.

Of course my image is Valerie from Mo's shop and I printed off her clothes in the patterned paper and treated the pieces exactly the same way if they were coloured. I added a bit of gold using a gel pen on her hat just to break it apart from the scarf.

The snowflakes are cut from fun foam and the word dies are from Penny Black, no idea whose the paper from they were some odd ones together.

Nearly all of Christmas present brought still waiting for some arrive but I now thinking I ought to make some Christmas tags.
