How did you do that? Remember "Frankie" from C.C. Designs - how her pants matched the designer paper - would you like to know how I did that. It's so easy! Stamp the image twice - once onto your plain cardstock and once onto background paper. With a really great pair of small craft scissors - like Close To My Heart Micro-Tip Scissors - cut out the parts of the stamped image you want to piece.
The swimsuit for the Prickley Pear "Pin-Up Girl" has been paper pieced twice. The swimsuit has been stamped on the light green designer paper and then again onto a peach designer paper. Her suit was carefully cut out with the micro-tipped scissors - cutting on the outside of the image - glued the pieces down with Tombo Mono Aqua Liquid Glue. Repeated the process with the swimsuit flowers and bow.
The girl is stamped onto Stampin' Up! Watercolor Paper and colored in with Stampin' Up! Watercolor Crayons. The center of the flowers have been filled with Stampin' Up Green Micro Beads (used the Tombo Liquid Glue).
A big thank you to Kathy for the cute little glass beads that are mounted to either side of the image. Kathy gave me these beads about three years ago - I knew one day I'd use them. The beads are glued into place with Stampin' Up! Mini Glue Dots.
Finally, the the layout for this card was from the Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.com today. Make it a great one - get out there and create!!
