Floral Piecing

Hello All, 

For today I will be playing along with Inkspirational, The Flower Challenge, and Stamping Sensations. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I stamped the stained glass image five times on different patterned paper.
Then stamped on the adhesive side of my sticker paper.
I am now set up for paper piecing.
Above: The stamped 'stained glass' image is the focal point of the card. I wanted to use limited embellishments and small sentiment to enhances the image. The white on white embossing is also a nice feature, not distracting, but adding to the design. Left/Below: A detailed view of the focal image. I wanted color continuity without too much thought, so I pulled out a paper pack. The colors in the pack all coordinate which made color matching a snap. Right/Below: I wanted to think about the aperture a bit differently than just adding a hole in the card. So, I added a big hole in the card ūüėČ and decided to fill it in with a border and the focal image. The aperture seems to allow the black border and focal image to 'float' in the window and let light onto the card. I think it turned out beautifully.

Challenges Entered:

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

This is truly beautiful, love the stain glass effect you achieved placing that piece of acetate on the back of the image.
The pattern papers you chose make the design look so real.
Thank you for sharing with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope you play again soon.
