The Flower Challenge #17 - Paper Piecing

Hello everyone ! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! 

Today I have a floral card to share with you! It's already time for a new challenge at The Flower Challenge. The technique for this month is Paper Piecing. 


I did use this technique for my projects maybe only two or three times so far. It's not a hard technique to do but getting a design idea took a while for me. 

I chose a large floral stamp, Large Peony5 by The Ton and paper pieced each petal on it. 


I started off by heat embossing the Large Peony5  on a white cardstock in Rose Gold.  I gold heat embossed solid leave stamp from Large Peony4 after masking the peony. I then watercolored some scraps of Canson Mixed Media paper in Wisteria, Peony and Lemon Yellow (Color Burst). I stamped petal by petal on the area with the shade of color I wanted, fussy cut them and glued them on the heat embossed panel.


To make a pink background with a bright halo around the main image I blended Worn Lipstick and Wilted Violet DOX on the border of the panel. I spritzed pearlized water on the panel and dabbed it off with a paper towel. For a finished look I cut the panel using the biggest Double Stitched Rectangle die (The Ton) and mounted it flat on a cardbase. The hello was cut from a Gold foil paper and from white cardstock to raise the golden hello word.  To finish off I added some sequins from Smoked Amethyst Sparkling Clear sequins and Glass Slippers by The Ton.

To be honest I regretted my plan while I was cutting and glueing the petals, but I really like the result :)!!!  Hope you'll give this technique a try! Please visit The Flower Challenge blog for more inspirations and challenge details!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
TaeEun

  6. Beautiful paper piecing TaeEun, a bit of a labour of love to stamp and cut every leaf from the watercoloured piece to get the lighter and darker pinks where you wanted them, but the finished flower is absolutely gorgeous, and the gold leaves and sentiment look so pretty. I love the amethyst sequin embellishments too. x
