Robyn's Fetish Challenge paper piecing

                                                      The front and inside of card.
    "Hello"  Today at Robyn's Fetish our challenge is paper piecing. The Robyn's Fetish Challenge can be found here. Our sponsor is Mary Ellen at Dearie Dolls. The cute image is Don't Pick the Flowers by Dearie Dolls. You can find it here.

    I had so much fun paper piecing this image. I printed it off on white, maize-yellow, pink, blue, and sage green cardstock. I set the colored pieces aside and used Copics on the skin, hair and the flowers on the apron. Next I cute out the images.Then I cut out the colored pieces I needed; hat, flowers, plaid pieces of dress,socks, and shoes,  and glued them on the white cardstock image. Now they are ready to make a project with.

   Copics used are E000, E00, E02-skin, E29, E33, E37- hair, G28, YG93, YG95- stem of flower, Y21, B000-flowers on apron.

   Papers used are Georgia Pacific-white, Colormates-sage green, maize yellow, and pink, Recollections- blue, prints are from a 6 x 6" scrap swap.

   The frame was cut using Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge oblong frame shadow key row 4 button 2 at 5.5".

     The flowers on the bottom card are cut Using Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge row 4 button 5, row 2 button 7, and row 5 button 7 all at 2", and row 2 button 9 at 1.15". Layer the flowers The inside flowers are glued together to form the bouquet. You can see a written tutorial with photos here. It is wonderful and it is easy  if you follow the steps. By using the  Flower Shoppe cartridge you don't cut out the one petal and over it.It saves you this step.

    Thank you for stopping by today. I was delighted to see you. Edwina
