Piece it together............

365 Cards Day 115

Well this is a first for me....Paper Piecing
I have never tried this before due to the arthritis in my thumbs as I find decoupage bad enough....but...I thoroughly enjoyed it and am pleased with the result. So thank you 365 :-)
Ingredients :-
Stamp - Sugar Nellie 'Talking to the Birds'
Colouring medium - ProMarkers
Main floral paper - Kay & Co. 'Sparkly Sweet'
Dark Pink Paper under image - KH Pink Painted Flat paper
Paper pieces - assortment of HOTP dark pinks and Basic Grey pale pinks
Sentiment stamp - PSX
Mulberry Flowers
1/4" punch
Pink base card and ribbon from my stash.

I pieced the jumper out of a piece of herringbone pattern paper, the skirt out of spotty paper and the hands and spots on the skirt out of plain pink paper.
I placed the pieced hands over the stems to make it look more like she's holding a bunch of flowers.
The flower in her hair and on the branch are the same colour as the mulberry flowers in real life but the scan has bleached the colour out.

You've done a smashing job with the paper piecing, well done on trying something new.

I've got a lot of catching up with the challenges and the lovely creations you have made.
