Belli Challenge #127 Paper Piecing

  For the Creative Belli Challenge we are challenged to make a card with paper piecing.

  For my card I used a digital image and sentiment both from Create with TLC. After I printed my image on cardstock, I printed it on copy paper. I cut scraps of old SU DSP for each piece I wanted to paper piece, attached them to the copy paper image with removable tape and ran it through the printer again.

This is how the images look when they come out of the printer.  I cut around the printed lines and adhere to the image-and finish my card.  I added some really really old rub-ons of a tree branch with a bird on it. For the sentiment, I cut out a Nestability, traced around the outside of the Nestie onto DSP and cut out a shadow, added sponging and added some rhinestones to enter the 365 challenge day 211- Triple it. I added some sponged clouds to the sky, and used Copics to make the grass. Then I used some really old blue thread and used a Feather stitch around the edge of my card.

The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!

Great job! I have yet to try paper piecing with my digital images. I thought it would be more difficult than that. TFS!
