Timeless Tuesday this week is to use paper piecing. I don't use this technique very often, but it is fun and gives a very different look from straight colouring. I started this card with white cardstock. I punched one side with a Martha Stewart border punch and embossed the rest with a Sizzix embossing folder, then layered this onto pink cardstock. I wrapped pink spot ribbon around it and added a bow. Then I stamped the sentiment from Flourishes Hello Baby stamp set with Memento ink onto white cardstock, die cut it with a Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs die and layered it onto pink cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die and added this to the background. Then I stamped the baby suit onto blending card and again onto paper from the With Love paper pack (Papermania). Then I stamped the booties onto blending card and then twice onto the same patterned paper making sure each bootie had the hearts going in the same direction. I coloured the ribbed bands and the inside of the baby suit on the blending card and also the inside of the booties. Then I cut out the suit from the paper omitting the bands and the inside and also each of the booties omitting the insides. I adhered the paper pieces onto the blending card pieces (I found a glue stick is ideal for this!) and added them to the background with foam tape. Finally I added two tiny pearls for the bootie "buttons".
Copic Colours used were: B0000, RV52, RV55.
