This week, Jessie Knight Rone is challenging us to break out those scissors and glue at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge (RCC10). Jessie wants us to do a little Paper-Piecing somewhere on our creations! From little dresses to trees or fairy wings, paper-piecing can add lots of pizzazz to a project. Remember your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings, anything will work!
*** Please remember that your creation must have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***
For my card I used a super cute Pure Innocence image from MFT Stamps, some lovely vintage seam binding and a small piece of crocheted ribbon. I paper pieced her overall and her cute polka dot boots from Stella Rose – Mabel designer paper. The rest of the image was colored with Copic markers and I sponged the cloud background using Ranger Distress Ink and a cloud template I cut using Taylored Expression’s Cloud Border Die.
More designer paper, some stitching added with my sewing machine and a few rhinestones finished my project! :) Hope you like it!
