Sliding in at the Finish Line!!

One more card for the Art Impressions Stamp challenge: Paper piecing, and it all started with an idea...*grin*
It was just one of "those" evenings that I didn't want to watch what ever my DH was watching on TV, my mind wandered on back here to a pile of AI stamps on my I followed along behind.  All my AI stamps (and that is quite a few) are piled on Betsy, waiting to live in a new binder. BUT! before I can even start moving them to the new binder Mr. Mojo said "Let's play first!" who am I to argue??? 
It ended up being an other paper piecing project......and a bit more of a challenge. I was sailing along when I had this "idea" to use kitchen towel for her coat.  My kitchen towels are two ply (two layers thick) I stamped the image, fussy cut it out and then pulled....ever so gently.....the layers apart.  Waalaaa! now how to adhere it to the full image?? hmmmmmm........glue makes the PT disappear, so I went for the double sided tape.....hey, it worked * very big grin*  I also used a lime green glittered paper for her shoes, purse and earrings......but it didn't scan so well.
The background paper is a copy of one of the pages from my art journal.  This challenge is about to close, so I better get this posted and linked up, besides I think I hear my pillow calling my name....
Make sure you check out all the DT work and the entries to this challenge.

Inky Hugs ( and a big yawn)


  1. Wow, oh wow, Krisha. This is amazing. I would never have thought to use a paper towel for stamped images, OR use double sided tape to hold it in place. This is wonderful, and shows your ingenuity. Hope you made the party in time, because this is a real keeper.

  2. I love this Krisha. I looked at her coat for a while before reading your write up, wondering what you'd used. A great idea and you've done a super job. I did a similar thing with a Christmas paper napkin last year. It's a delicate process and I remember holding my breath in case it ripped. Your paper towel gives a lovely texture. A really good idea.

  3. What fun she is! It is so rewarding to just play and find success!!

  4. Krisha, my bloggy friend, thank you for stopping by! Your card is SO funny, and I love the texture on her coat.

    It's so good to "see" you. It seems like there just isn't enough time to do all the blog visiting I'd like to do. Maybe set aside at least a couple of hours one day and just do it?


    Happy Thursday to you!

  5. Love this! Your accessorized lady is absolutely wonderful!

  6. I love your card. What a great idea for her coat. I noticed the texture before I read how you did it. So creative! thanks for sharing!

  7. Wonderful card, glad you told us how it went together. I'm agree with the sentiment too.
