It is the 1st of May today and that means I have a project over at Roc's blog. I have made a postcard today but it is a little different to my normal stuff..
Sometimes I like to try different techniques. I have used paper piecing before but it was a long time ago so I decided it was time to do it again and it was great fun !
I used a 6" x 6" paperback by 7Dots Studio called 'Writer's block'.
I used a stencil on the background to create the blue trellis. I used a normal pencil and the same stencil to add a light lines around the blue figures to make them stand out more.
I stamped horse on a different pattern paper from the same series and did the same with the hat and eyes. I painted the pupils of his eyes with the same blue paint. I also added some shading to the horse and the hat with Copic Markers. When I was happy with the result I glued it all together on the card after adding some washi tape.
Lastly I stamped the Heart Vine and coloured in the stems and hearts with Copic Markers.
The sentiment is a small talk sticker by Tim Holtz.
I used the following stamps:
