Paper pieced Talented Trio featuring Gorgeous Grunge from Stampin’ Up! for Less Is More Lucky Dip Week 248 Challenge.
No Christmas cards today. I’m giving you all a break! Ha ha :-). Instead I have a bright and cheery birthday card using Talented Trio featuring Gorgeous Grunge from Stampin’ Up! I’ve teamed it up with one of my all time favourites Gorgeous Grunge. Im entering this card in to the Less Is More Lucky Dip Week 248 Challenge where the theme is paper piecing – I threw in some paper piercing just in case I had misread it – ha ha! Covering all bases!!
I decided on Talented Trio as the smock (or pinafore?) the little girl is wearing is ideal for paper piecing – I used a design from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. The Gorgeous Grunge came about as I was colouring in the little girl and the paint brushes. She reminds me of my niece and I was thinking about her whilst I was colouring. I have introduced my niece to card making and I was remembering letting her use my stamps and ink pads when she came to stay over the summer – she managed to get ink everywhere! I had to look away as she mashed the stamps in to the ink pads – she’s still a bit heavy handed but she is still young and I didn’t want to put her off with my OCD! Lol!
I coloured the little girl in with some coloured pencils. It’s such a dreary day today so this card is the perfect antidote. I hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by – have a fun weekend where-ever you are!
