Paper pieced snippets

Hello and thank you for your visit.

I'd like to say a BIG thank you for all the lovely and supportive messages I've had to my last post.

I've had a busy few weeks with several visitors staying with us and I did the demo at the club.  I'll show photos when I get them downloaded.

This is a paper pieced card which I made with snippets some time ago.

The stamp is by Woodware and I bought it as I thought it would be perfect for paper piecing which is something I really enjoy doing.

 The panel at the side used the last piece of this pretty paper which I think was a magazine freebie.  The little butterfly was punched out from the edge, hidden by a flower petal.  I used a couple of Promarkers for a little shading.

Have a lovely weekend and happy crafting.

A really pretty paper pieced card - Woodware stamps are usually great for this technique which is fun to do and uses up bits and pieces (not that the pile of 'bits' ever decreases in size).
