The Male Room Guest Designer - Challenge #8 - Paper Piecing

Hello everyone,

I'm excited to be joining The Male Room as their guest for Challenge#8 - Paper Piecing. 

On to my card. I love Lawn Fawn and those who follow me, kind of get that feeling.  This card is no different.  I have waited a long time for the Happy Harvest set but I was finally able to have it in my collection.

I started out with the leafy tree backdrop an ink blended the leaves with red, green orange distress inks, brown distress ink for the tree and two different greens for the stitched hills. I cut out a piece of watercolour pattern paper and used it for the fall sky and added it to the card base. I took the corn stocks and stamped them in the background with a light yellow ink and stamped the sentiment from the same set with black ink.

For my scarecrow, I used patterned paper to piece his hat, overalls and shirt. To make the pieces look seamless I ran my Momento black marker around the edges to hide the white of the paper.  I then colouring in his face, hands and feet with my copics. I then popped him up with foam tape and added him to the card and called it done.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  We hope you'll join us for our paper piecing challenge.

Happy crafting!!
