I wanted to get this card into Curtain Call and TimeOUT Challenge while I still had some time to blog.. The plaid challenge took awhile to process but then I thought paper piecing would be perfect for this type project. Here is my card, enjoy!
|This card was die cut twice and then |
popped up for a bit more dimension.
|She looks like she is making a wish.|
So I thought stars and the sentiment were a perfect fit.
|Paper piecing the jacket looked very flat until the shading|
came into play. Now I can hardly tell it one piece of paper.
I saw this plaid and said 'that's it!'. Paper piecing her jacket seemed like a natural fit. The cuffs and hood are part of the base. I wanted to keep her coloring light so the jacket could play off the sky and the stars. After looking at her all colored she seemed to have needed more dimension so I die cut the image twice and raised the center. So why not have the entire card be the exact shape? I think the purples and reds work so well with the jacket.. I actually suprised myself when pulling off the mask after I built the sky.. This one I will keep for a bit but it will most certainly go to someone special in my life..
