I joined a great swap in the Oriental Art Yahoo Group- use an unused stamp. I have one or two of those.....
Crafters Companion. I colored it with Copics and fussy cut it out. I placed it over a Die cut with Washi paper peaking out. I also paper pieced the Kimono using Washi except for the sleeves. The punch on the bottom border is by Martha Stewart and I used metallic gold cardstock. I added shimmer on the butterflies using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
I could do a swap using my stuff once a month, and that would be such a great thing to put ink to some unused stamps!
My Time to Craft challenge wants to see Paper Piecing. Over at Outlawz, the Paper Ala Mode challenge is AG this week. Mod Squad challenge wants us to Use it or Lose it. I used a stamp set I HAD to have- was yet uninked, and it is the first time I used the background die (in red).
Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
