The Flower Challenge #17 Paper Piecing

Hi there friends, it's time for another challenge over at 'The Flower Challenge'. Here is my DT card,
this month we want to see some 'Paper Piecing'. Please make a note that is it is Paper PIECING and not Paper Piercing !....so easy to confuse the two!

Come and have a peek at my card, I hope it inspires you to take part. If you haven't tried this before, you just have to use a piece of patterned paper on part of your image. See the DT's examples if you are not sure ;) 



 
White Linen card
Silver sparkly card
AltENew Build a flower Anenome stamp & die
Penny Black Love die 
Brenda Walton scrapbook design paper
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Gamsai Tambi paint
 
 
 
I made an A6 top fold card base, added a smaller top piece. Then I stamped my flower and leaves and stamped my flower again onto my patterned paper. I used my flower die to cut my patterned piece. 

Then I cut my sentiment and added both to my card topper. I water coloured around my leaves  to match my flower. Then I added the topper to my card base.


Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge.
