Penny Black Challenge - Paper Patch


Hello everyone - I cannot believe a whole week has gone by since my last post - summertime is much harder to find time to stamp - I am competing with so many other projects in the summer - but I will try and post at least once a week during the summer for sure. Today my card is for the Penny Black challenge - patchwork. I made the background to look like a quilt and I had it as the entire background and I found it way too overwhelming so I cut it down and decided to actually make it look like a quilt hanging in the backyard. I had these little clothespegs that I have never used yet and I knew that one day they would come in handy. I used my new Penny Black stamp from the slapstick collection. I colored the stamp with my copics using E00, E02,E42, E43, E33, E35, E37,YR00, YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24,G21, G28, G29,W1,W3,W5. I used my new dots cuttlebug embossing folder for the dark green background, some twine for the clothes line, a scalloped border that I had for the quilt bottom, punched flowers for quilt and base and I added some small brown buttons and brads as the last embellishment. I also did some faux stitching on the quilt and some paper piecing for the clothes. The sentiment I used was from SU and I used the 2 sizes of oval punches from SU to punch the sentiment background and the oval the boy is standing on. Thank you for stopping by and having a look - it is much appreciated. Hope you have had a wonderful weekend - we had some beautiful summer like weather yesterday - today was more rainy but still nice and warm.

Your stamping friend, Debbie
