Today is another day and with that a new challenge at The Male Room! These next coming weeks the challenge is all about 'Paper Piecing'. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
|As you can probably tell this was no easy task! |
First, I took a picture of my drawn template and numbered them. I then cut the entire sheet. I traced and cut appropriate pieces and numbered those with the corresponding number on the template.
I used an adhesive backed sticker paper and place the pieces. It was then with baited breath I took the back sheet off and placed it on the black base.
|There is a lot going on but it seems to be cohesive due to colors and its gray undertones. Also, the color black seems to unite and frame the main panel nicely. You may notice the black lines around the feathers. It seemed to me with all the busyness they got lost. So, I traced the feathers in black to delineate them a bit better.|
|The 'hello' sentiment was comprised of the same paper scraps from my focal panel. All I did was cut the remainder of my scraps in strips and placed them down on an adhesive sticker sheet. Then I die-cut the sentiment and traced, then cut around the sentiment for the black border. I really enjoy the vellum oval. It gives the sentiment a place to rest.|
