Alpaca Pals

Paper piecing play

Up early today as off to get the hair sorted so thought I would pop on and update the blog just before I set off!

Last weekend I had some paper leftover and spotted the Alpaca Pals stamp set whilst I was looking for something else and knew immediately I had to make this card. Sometimes the inspiration just strikes and you have to go for it!

So stamped the Birds onto mixed media cardstock and the stripey paper and then the floral element onto basic white and then the flower part onto the remaining stripey paper and got cutting with my scissors.

I then watercoloured the birds and the leaves of the flower.

Then stuck the paper pieces into place.

I decided the flowers would benefit from a splatter background so used the same inks to splatter. I also added a little shading colour to the flowers onto the patterned paper to give dimension.

I stamped the sentiment strip and then added the birds on either end using foam to raise them up above the flowers.

I added some colour to pearls to coordinate with the colours in the card and then used Petal Pink for the base card and a mat panel. I then raised the mat panel up on foam again for dimension.

Love how it came out and for once it actually looked like how I imagined when the inspiration struck.

Happy crafting!
