Well, at least we saw the sun this weekend, even if it was accompanied by some snow flurries.
Good thing Easter is late this year, we at least have a chance that the weather will be nice.

This weeks idea is paper piecing.  Although not a new technique, when I saw this stamp,
I thought how fun it would be to paper piece it.

Close up of birdhouse.

Finished card.

Card Recipe

Stamp - Impression Obsession - ( G16002) Cling
Inside Sentiment - A Muse (8-8535C)
Dies - Grass Poppystamps (825) Branch Memory Box (98187)
Leaves - Cottage Cutz Bella Leafy Branch (CCE-003)
Adirondack Inks - Meadow Green, Stonewashed blue
Colored the yellow parts with copic markers
Card base is 41/8x51/2
Stamped with Versafine Onyx and embossed with clear EP
Action Wobbler holds the birdhouse on the card and
makes it move like it would,  hanging in a tree.
Tim Holtz sponge applicator used to sponge clouds (tear or cut a paper
towel and sponge along the edge in a upward stroke on the card.
Move the paper towel as you move down the card,  so pattern isn't the same on each row.
Sponge edges.

Stamp the image on white or cream card stock.  Then stamp the images you want
to paper piece onto scraps of designer papers and cut out and adhere to the stamped image
on the white/cream card stock.  When you have finished, cut out the entire finsihed image and
adhere to your card.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later...............
