POLKA DOT SANTA! LILY-BOOTOO DECEMBER CHALLENGE
Over at Lily-BooToo this month the challenge is paper piecing somewhere on your image.
I've never done any paper piecing and was surprised how easy this was and far more fun for me than colouring as I'm so not good at the colouring lol! I will definitely try this again!
My card is A4 folded in half to make an A5 landscape card and the backing paper is from Pink Petticoat snowflakes download. The image is from Lily-Boos Christmas rectangles collection and I chose this jolly Santa! I paper pieced his suit in red and white polka dot (well they could be his jammies!) and the sky with snowy paper. These papers are from this years Pink Petticoat Christmas dvd Fairy Lights. I added Polar White Flowersoft to his beard and trim and a white pom pom to his hat. The rest is coloured with Promarkers. I then mounted on to black and then red mirri silk(it is red but looks orange in the photo! believe me it matches the ribbon perfectly!!)
Ribbon is from Costco and some red gems from my stash to finish off.
Hope you can join us at Lily-Bootoo this month we'd love to see your paper piecing projects!
Thanks as always for looking and hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!
