Born To Shop Tag (Paper Piecing) - Creative Fingers

Hi Everyone

Time for a new challenge over at Creative Fingers and our sponsor this week is Birdie Brown.  The theme as always is 'Anything Goes' with an optional twist of 'Paper Piecing'.  The image I used for this is called 'Retro Girl' - isn't she just so cute?

Despite having a Cameo to to the vast majority of all my cutting for me I still love picking up my scissors to do a little paper piecing - for me the results are tremendously satisfying.  The image is coloured with ProMarkers, then I paper pieced her dress and handbag.

The background paper for this tag is by Hampton Art - Ki Berry Blast paper pack, for the paper piecing I used the same papers but from the smaller 6x6 paper pad.  The lace and ribbon are from my stash, the flower and pins are from Webster's Pages.

Just so my Cameo didn't feel left out I used it and my sketch pens to make the sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today.  Come on over to Creative Fingers to check out what the rest of the DT have been up to and join us for the challenge.
