Mother's Day Paper Piecing

The current challenge over at the Corrosive Challenge Blog is to make a card using the paper piecing technique. This is one of my favourite techniques - I love the effect of images coloured in with patterned papers.


The bag and shoe images are both from Pink Petticoat, a great place for cute girly images and sentiments. Using Microsoft Publisher, I arranged the images slightly overlapping and added the greeting with a text box (Worstveld Sling font). I then reprinted the bag image only onto some pretty floral Pink Petticoat paper and pieced this over the original image. The shoes are also decoupaged and are coloured with promarkers. I've finished the card by adding a cute pink bow.

I'm going to try and develop this style of card with other images as I'm really pleased with the result.

  1. Lovely card! I really like the purse, what cute paper to use for the paper piecing. A very sweet, clean and simple card. Thanks so much for joining us at The Corrosive Challenge.
