A little piece of paper...

Good morning, it's my turn to host the challenge at Fab'n'Funky this week which means I get to pick the theme :)...and  I pick 'Paper Piecing', which is one of my favourite techniques! I love to colour but I also love the effects of using scraps of DP to 'colour' the image...it's quick and it uses up some of my huge, never-seeming-to-diminish stash of 'left overs'! So here's my card, I used a Prima Doll stamp, coloured her hair and skin with copics and then dressed her up with scraps of paper, I used what was left to make the background, just die cut into squares, I added a stamped sentiment and some doodled stitches with a white gel pen to finish. Quick and easy :)
Please take the time to hop on over to the challenge blog, there's some wonderful inspiration from the rest of Team Funky and a lovely prize on  offer from our lovely sponsor this week Live and Love Crafts, so I really hope you'll be inspired to join in with my challenge!
Thanks for visiting today!
