Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ Paper Piecing

 
This week at "Flourishes" the Timeless Tuesday challenge is "paper piecing"
the Flourishes stamps are one of my favorites, as the detail each stamp
provides is amazing.
 
That being said, I had to jump in for this challenge...
The challenge this week is a bit different, as "you" have the chance to
become a guest designer in the month of December...
I am keeping everything "crossed" for that...lol
 

 
I have over 20 sets of Flourishes stamps and chose "Winter Blossoms"
to use for my paper piecing....
I first stamped my image on watercolor paper and colored it in with TH distress markers
I stamped my image a second time on paper from Basic Grey Porcelain paper pad
and carefully cut them out.....
 
 
For a bit of "sparkle" I added Stickles to the flower centers
and I did a "shadow" around the edges with my distress marker...
I used a Spellbinders die for underneath and two shades of sheer ribbon for the bow...
I think it turned out rather soft, simple, and elegant!!!
 
Wish me luck...and on Tuesday, Oct 8th you can vote for "the peoples choice"
for one lucky person to become the 4th December guest designer!!!
