Wishing you a cozy day - Stampavie and More #283

Wednesday March 22, 2017
Welcome to another two week challenge at Stampavie and More #283 where the theme for this
challenge is PAPER PIECING
I seldom do paper piecing... so when I saw this was the theme.. Humm what will I do??? So digging through my stamps I saw this fun Simon Says stamp set.. and thought perfect.. Instead of just paper piecing the pillows. I thought why not.. lets paper piece the cat and dog.. Aren't they cute? I had the kitten head also in the print but you just lost the face so I stamped the head on a plain cream piece of paper. I found a lighter color tan for the dog and stamped his head. The head are adhered with foam dots and the body also is so they are extra thick.  I used various straps of paper for this whole card. I did use a little copic coloring to the heads to give it more depth.  You always hear how kittens are like a queen.. so I thought the EK crown punch was a nice touch. (I don't have cats because I am allergic to them but I love seeing videos and photos of kittens and if I wasn't allergic I know I would have one or two) We do have two dogs, they are hair dogs so I am not allergic to them.  :)  The hearts are EK punch and some left over from other projects.. most likely Simon Says. I like how it came out.. I hope you play along and I cant wait to see what you have created in paper piecing.
