I thought Rosie would be the perfect image to paper piece and I had lots of fun with the project. I always have to sit and look at an image a few minutes to figure out how many times I need to stamp the it for paper piecing. Paper Piecing requires lots of fussy cutting but I think it is worth the effort. I definitely needed to stamp her on watercolor paper so I could paint all the skin and hair portions that show. I stamped the complete dress once on designer paper, cut it out and attached to the base. I stamped the top portion and arms a second time, cut it out and layered over top the dress base. I had to color and cut a second pair of hands to fit in the sleeves. I used the wings portion of the base image as a template to sketch out the lines on vellum, cut it out, covered it with glossy accents and glitter. I cut the wings off the base and attached the vellum wings with rolled glue dots. I stamped the sash on white cardstock and watercolored lightly with antique linen ink to take away the stark white appearance cut it out and attached to the dress base. I tucked the small die cut heart into the hands and attached with glossy accents.
I used three different sections of the spiral flowers die set to create the layered rose. I wanted it to be large enough to cover the stamped rose and to create dimension. Here’s a closer view.
I cut the love sentiment border and then cut the mini heart row and attached to the white card base with mounting tape. I attached Rosie with mounting tape for one last layer of dimension. I love how this card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying the hop.
