A Boy and His Dog - Paper Piecing
Good evening everyone. I wanted to use some of the new stuff I bought and to participate in one of the Moxie Fab challenges that are going on right now. I haven't done some paper piecing lately and I knew this October Afternoon stamp set called Kite Tales would work perfectly. This little boy and his dog are adorable!! Going through all the designer paper that I have gathered in an attempt to use some (for a change) I decided to us the Mellow 6x6 pad (BasicGrey). I choose 4 of the patterns - stripes (for his shirt), brown solid (for his pants), green solid (for his speech bubble), and cloud page (for the background). The sentiment is from Mixed Messages (Papertrey Ink) See
that awesome grass ... it is a piece of Banana Leaf Festive paper by Creative Imaginations. It is the coolest stuff ... soft and green and flexible! I fringed it and then smooshed it all around the boy and dog's feet.
This was a FUN card to create.
Thanks for dropping in. Off to see what others paper pieced for the challenge.
