Good morning all.
So much for bright blue skies, a warm front means grey skies and rain again!
Over at Cardz4Guyz our latest challenge for you is to make a project that uses
For my card I took inspiration from those little lambs outside the window along with a sketch over at MFT Challenges.
I used paper piecing to create the little landscape on the tag, using snippets of green DP and some NitWits sky DP. The little lambs are from a MFT set, Ewe are the Best. For the background I wanted something subtle but more than leaving it white so with a new challenge in mind, I washed in some DI in a watercolour effect and popped up the tag on top. CAS Mix Up is a new challenge started by my friend Loll (Stamping with Loll) and Bonnie (Stamping with Klass) for CAS cards with a mixed media twist..
The cute little trees and hillside stamp are also from the same MFT set and the paper patterns used reminds me of the picture at Card Concept. I was a bit scissor happy and chopped off both sides of the sentiment banner instead of just the right hand side after sticking it over the tag! The little lambs were stamped, coloured with Copics, then fussy cut. The middle one is actually a mirror stamp, where I stamped the image onto a clean acrylic block then took a print from that so that he is looking the other way.
OK, that's about it. For more ideas on the topic of paper piecing check out the rest of the DT and then why not join us this week, we'd love to see your projects.
Here is another lamb photo taken the other morning.

My choice is paper piecing and using Copics
