Plaid Girl

Hello Again,

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..

Challenges Entered:
Curtain Call: Plush and Plaid
TimeOUT Challenge: #43- Use Pink and/or Purple

Hello Shawna,
I have no idea how you managed to create a three-dimensional picture ...? Beautiful colors, so gentle colors go into other shades. And the face of the girl - so many thoughts in her head curls, but you can see that its intentions are friendly. Had she thought, what good can do for someone?
Beautiful card.

Oh, I love her beautiful plaid jacket, Shawna - you have really done a great job with the paper piecing and the shading!!!! The stacked die cuts was such a creative idea - it adds such a lot of dimension to the picture!!!! And the sky and stars are just wonderfully done!!!! Lovely card, my friend!!!
