Less is More Week 73 - Paper Piecing

I've been suffering a lack of interest in crafting the last few weeks, hence my lack of blogging, but this week's lessismore challenge got me rummaging about in my enormous box of scraps to have a go a paper piecing.

Cutting out is not my favourite activity (much prefer colouring), probably cause I'm not very good at it - so don't zoom in to closely will you!!!!

For my card I used an old Rubber Romance stamp which I thought was perfect for the job. The papers are all HOTP from a QVC TSV I bought some years ago, except the flesh coloured one which I just found lurking about in the pile.  I just added a bit of Promarker shading to the chocolate boxes and under the cushions so she didn't look like she was floating on air.

The sentiment stamp is from Funstamps - It didn't stamp as well as it could have, but I think I can get away with it.

Time to hop into the bathtub now and then I plan to settle down in front of the TV to watch the footie. Fingers crossed for England.

Have a good evening and thanks for dropping by.

I have that sentiment stamp and it's a very shallow impression - too easy to get "fallout"!!

Love your card
