SOG Challenge: Paper Piecing

Hi all,

Well, I'm sitting here in Germany, or maybe the Netherlands, enjoying the lovely weather on the other side of the world, and thinking, "I feel like we reallly need a card challenge!".  LOL

As you know, every second Thursday, the Some Odd Girl blog puts up a new challenge, with the chance to win some prizes and display your awesome work!  And we especially love it when you show off your SOG images too!

This week, we are challenging you to use paper piecing on your project - so grab some textured or patterned papers, and get to work!

Here's mine:

My base is Sahara Sand CS, all the patterned papers are from SU (can't remember which pack though - really old one), and all the mats are black.  The strip across the middle has a black piece punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch, and I added some adhesive studs to the top and bottom of one of the panels.  The sentiment is an SU rub-on, punched out with the Word Window punch, and matted on top of a black piece cut out with the Modern Label punch.

I printed Prof Hoot onto Whisper White CS, and coloured him mostly with Copics - but if you look closely, you will see my paper piecing - his fur is brown polka dots!  I also added some black Sakura Glaze pen to his eyes, and some Wheat sponging around the outside.  Is he not the cutest???  He is from our newest digi release, and he is in great company this month!

You have 2 weeks to make a card using paper piecing and link it up on the SOG blog - we'd love to see you over there!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
