I realised I had made a few mistakes and wanted to practice as I love the look of this type of card and have always loved jigsaw puzzles. There is just something I find so relaxing and satisfying about popping those bits out of the dies and then assembling them in different colour combinations. Add that to the lovely dies I used from Paper Smooches, Lawn Fawn and of course My Favourite Things and I have been in a paper piecing paradise. The only real shame is how tricky it can be to get stamps and dies from these companies in the UK at a reasonable price :( if you guys have found a good supplier please let me know
As I was practicing I found some brightly coloured card blanks I have had kicking around for a while, I cut them down and then started cutting some of my favourite shapes out of them. I then wanted some cool patterned paper to piece into the shapes.
I used distress inks and water with a little perfect pearls in it and was really chuffed with how they turned out.
Thanks for looking and if you haven't had a go at paper piecing I urge you to try it
