Robyn's Fetish Challenge #146, Paper Piecing

Hello Peeps.

I'm back with another installment of the weekly Robyn's Fetish Challenge!

This week, we are sponsored by My Heart Pieces and the winner will receive THREE images of their choice! Fabulous, right?

Our theme this week is PAPER PIECING and I got to use a cute image from the My Heart Pieces Shop called: "Bathing Fairy". You can find it HERE.

As you know, I did a little paper piecing for last week's project, too, for my bee's body and wings... it really is quite fun to see a digital image come to life with patterned paper and it adds so much depth and texture to a project.

When my boys were babies, we always used the Johnson's Lavender scented body wash for them, because it did tend to sooth and relax them when it was bed time... so when I saw the bath image, I was thinking relaxation and chose to work with the "Chateau Lavender" mat stack from DCWV...

I cut out the tea cup, the flowers, the stem, the wings, the slippers, the shampoo bottle, the comb, and the sunglasses! WHEW! That's a lot of fussy cutting!!

The bubbles are a mixture of liquid pearls (white opal) and Stickles (diamond). In real life, they look all shimmery and "bubbly"! (-:

The swirly background is from Bird's Cards... she has some of the most amazing FREE SVG files!! This one is called "Swirly Frame 6"... let me tell you, frames one through five are JUST as fantastic!!! I cut the frame in white, the shadow layer in lavender, then popped it on a stipey piece...

The polka dotted flower behind my fairy was cut with the "Blossom" Nestie then trimmed out in more Stickles...

Every paper on the card came from one mat stack! Aren't I all "Matchy-Matchy" this week? LOL!!

I hope you'll join us this week over at the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog for Challenge Number 146... Paper Piecing is so fun, I really hope you'll give it a try!
