Our theme this week is ....
That can be Summer themed, or hot colours We are sponsored this week by
The sponsor images were snapped up by the team Funky girls for this one as it was their turn this week, and you can see their fabulous designs over on the blog. I decided because although a team Fab girl myself I still wanted to join in with this Funky challenge so I used an image called Lizzie from Stamp Art by Kathryne, which I already had in my stash.
I decided to use paper piecing on the card and went for a central stepper card fold. I used My Craft Studio to print a piece of card with the yellow and blue spotted papers and the stripy paper into 3 of the four quadrants of a piece of white A4 card leaving the fourth quadrant plain white. I then sized the image to fit one of the quadrants and used the copy and past function to place an image into each of the four quadrants and then used the card that I had already printed and ran it through the computer a second time
I was then able to fussy cut the parts of the image from each of the three on the patterned sections of the card. I coloured Lizzie and her towel using Promarkers,
Skin - Ivory, Satin Dusky pink
Hair - Spice, Honeycomb and Cinnamon
Towel - Sky Blue, Cyan, Yellow, Sunflower Bright Orange and Honeycomb
Once Coloured I added the patterned sections of card to the parasol and her bikini and then fussy cut the whole image and mounted her on a die cut circle. I used yellow card mounted on black to give the effect of the sun and then used the patterned papers I used in the paper piecing mounted on black card to mat and layer on the card blank.
I added two computer generated sentiments to finish.
I am entering this card into the following challenge
