PTI's February Blog Hop
Tonight is PaperTrey's monthly blog hop. My inspiration came from several of the designers when using the Violet stamp set.
Here's Debbie Olson's pieced violet:
I have long wanted to start coloring with Copic markers and have even purchased some but not really done much with them before now. I also love how paper piecing is one of current trends so I did a mix of these two techniques.
I used the Friend till the End stamp set. One of my favorites I must say. I pieced the flower, sorta - I stamped the flower on Bitty Polka Dot paper and stamped a background from Background Basic Retro for the flower's center.
I colored the leaves with the Copics. I strategically placed most of the leaves behind the flowers.
The background stamping I saw on one of Nicki Estes card when searching for coloring inspirations. Thanks Nicki for letting me scraplift.
Enjoy the hop and thanks for stopping by.
