Paper Piecing with Paper Sundaes

This week at Paper Sundaes, Shana and I have set the challenge as Paper Piecing, since our sponsor is MFT, and their stamps work so perfectly for this technique.  I sure wish I could play along for a chance to win, since this week's winner will recieve a $25 gift certificate to MFT!  We also have a special guest designer this week, so you really need to stop by Paper Sundaes and take a look!

This cutie is a Pure Innocence from MFT called 'Love You With All My Heart'.  The sentiment is from MFT's 'More Essential Sentiments', I just inked up the first word from their 'Love you, love me' sentiment.  The tag is also from MFT, their Die-namics Dog Tag.  I just love this paper from last year's Valentine's line from We R Memory Keepers.  I'm so sad that it's almost gone now!

The layout is from the current MFT sketch challenge.  I'm doing well so far this year, 3 for 3!  Only 49 more to go :)  I've kept it quite clean and simple, and just rotated it 180°.

Copic colours:
skin- E000, 00, 21, 11, 31, BV000
hair - Y32, 23, 26
Shoes and dress shading - G40, 21

Challenges -
Creatalicious Challenge - Love
Let's Ink It Up - Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenge - I heart You
Sentimental Sundays - Die Cuts
Paper Play - Ribbon every which way

 I hope you can come and join us in our challenge this week at Paper Sundaes!

Thanks so much for stopping by!


You know you're Canadian if...

 You know that the Friendly Giant isn't a vegetable product line.

Gorgeous card Christine.
I am really into paper piecing at the moment and yours is perfect.

(Thank you for elaborating on the toque subject...Now I'm learning the Canadian lingo! but over here the only thing the I think of with a giant is sweetcorn!)
