Kath, a regular participant at the Rudolph Days Challenge and a fellow team mate of mine at another challenge blog, passed away this summer; she was known for her paper piecing so in her memory, I paper pieced this Christmas card. I was in awe of her patience, especially when she made a set of cards. it’s not a technique I use because of my hands, and because I love to paint images, but I had fun with this one.
I used winter wonderland doodlebug papers and stamped the My Favourite Things elf 5 times. thanks to my tonic scissors, I was able to cut everything except for the skin tones which I used colour pencils for on designer paper. I added stickles to the cuffs and ornament. I stamped off the little snowflake image a few times with versa fine majestic blue ink and stamped a sentiment from the mama elephant jingle greetings set. I used liquid glue on the backs of all the pieces whereas Maureen, of Rudolph Days Challenge, painted glue on the base image and then attached the pieces – brilliant.
I’m also playing along with these challenges:
thanks for popping by.
