so sweet

Good evening, I've had a bit of time to play today and I've been trying out some new stamps that I've shamelessly treated myself to recently! I'm not even going to pretend that I'm trying not to buy new stuff...'cos I'm not! Anyway, here's one of them...Tallulah in her could I possibly resist! This challenge over at Allsorts, chosen by my lovely blog buddy Kath, is paper piecing -one of my favourite techniques. It would be rude not to play along so I've paper pieced Tallulah, her balloon and the top layer of her tutu, the frilly bit is coloured with copics. I used a light grey copic to add a bit of shading to her beautiful body, just love all those wrinkly bits!, and a white gel pen to add the dots to her skirt plus a touch of glossy accents to that magnificent balloon. Very simple L/O using (virtuously) a scrap of  very old DP. The flower is cut from the DP (under the image!) and I added a button and the sentiment.
Hope everyone's had a lovely weekend and is ready to face the week ahead.
Thanks for visiting.

Brilliant card Chris, love the image and your paper piecing is brilliant, love the flower with the flower button.
Funny I have been sorting out my buttons this weekend and deciding that I should use them as I have had them for years and never think to use them.
Thank you so much for joining our Paper Piecing challenge this week at Allsorts.

Hi Chris,
oh isn't that Ellie so fab and I can see why you couldn't resist buying that stamp.
Your colouring is excellent as usual, and the paper piercing is fab.
Love your papers used also.
