Bellarific Friday: Paper Piecing

Hi all,

Well, I decided to throw in a creation to participate in this week's Bellarific Friday at the Stamping Bella blog!  They challenged us to use some paper piecing on our project.  Shouldn't be toooooo difficult, right?

I used the completely adorable image called Izzie Has A Brelly by Christy Croll.  At first, I hadn't noticed these images, but then I saw what some of the Bella Babes were doing with them, and I was sold!

My DSP is from SU's Porcelain Prints pack, and I used Whisper White, Basic Black, and Basic Gray CS.  I also added some white zig-zag stitching around the base layer.  The ribbon is some Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon from SU.  The sentiment is also from the Bella store, but it came with another image - I thought it went well with the whole rainy/umbrella thing!  It was stamped with black ink, and punched out with a Word Window punch.  I added a white flower to the left side, which I folded in half.  I also added some glitter spots above the umbrella - it kinda looks like magic raining down on her.

I stamped Izzie onto Bella's Bestest cardstock, and coloured her with Prismacolour pencils.  The paper piecing is on her dress - I used some Blue Bayou Prints DSP...the one with the white flowers on it.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
