It's all about technique!!!!

Hello everyone, 
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you like challenges as much as I do and if you do play along and you could win some scrappy goodness from my studio! 

I'm part of a wonderful little blog group called Papertrey Princesses.  Each week one of the blog group posts a challenge for everyone to play along with.  This is my week to post a challenge and I (we) would love for you to play along. 

I love to use my art supplies in new ways.  I also love challenges.  So for todays card I combined several different challenges/techniques. 

First, let me introduce you to the technique of paper piecing as found in the Paper Piecing Challenge in the Moxie Fab WorldI want you to use at least 4 layers to create your project. 

Second, I used sewing on my project to add some demension to the base layer of my project.  Sewing is so fun, you can add a touch to your project by machine or by hand. 

Third, this weeks Make it Monday challenge at Capture the Moment is to use a Vellum Sentiment strip on your project. 

And finally I stamped my image with VersaMark, used off white embossing power and heat set the image.  This provided an excellent medium to use my Glimmer Mist to paint the image.  Isn't is Beautiful! 




To win the scrappy goodness from me just link me up to your blog  or gallery (include a way to contact you if you win)  and let me know what technique or challenged you did.  Have fun!
