Challenge #197 at Meljen's Designs.

Good morning everyone!! Today we are on challenge #197 over at Meljen's Designs. The theme this week is Love you To Pieces (Paper Piecing). Here is my creation for our challenge:


I used Eskimo Kisses from Meljen's Designs. It was a great image to paper piece! I was able to use a lot of scraps from the papers I used this winter. I did some stitching on this care. I paper pieced their clothing. I decoupaged their jackets and hats. I added glitter to the hat and jackets. I colored the shoes, hands, nose and heart with Copic. Those little corners are paper folding from a tutorial at Doing Life. If you haven't visited Desire's blog, then you really should! She is amazingly talented and has some fantastic tutorials!!  Be sure to check it out and become a follower!! I added the blue gems to the corners. The Eskimo Kisses is handwritten.

Copic:
  • Skin: E93
  • Heart: BG01, BG05
  • Shoes: W3, W5, W7, W9

I had to come over and visit your blog. This card is so stinkin adorable!!!!! Creating the fuzzy on it is priceless! There is so much to look at and it is so well done! You definitely pushed the edge of goodies without crossing into the "way to much zone" I gotta ask though..if you have a moment and even see this...the corner things you made...how did you do that?? circle punch??? not really sure but loved them!
Well have a great day!!!! I am going to have to poke around here a bit and see what else you have done!
