This week's fun challenge over at the Paper Players involves a fun technique...
It's CAS week and Anne Marie is challenging us to use the paper piecing technique (that is when you stamp an image on dsp and encorporate all or part of that into your design). This is a really fun technique (particularly if you like fussy cutting lol!) - for me the challenge lay in the CAS part...! I've said this before, and anyone who knows the sorts of cards I like to make will have noticed this, but I struggle with CAS big time! When I try a CAS design I look at it and think that it's missing something... So I went with a boy's card - I figured that this might lend itself to a simpler design!
I picked the colour combo from the Colour Coach - Tangerine Tango, River Rock and Not Quite Navy and used this week's Freshly Made Sketch for the layout...
The car from Need for Speed was stamped on Tangerine Tango patterned paper and cut out (minus the wheels) and layered on the same image stamped on Whisper White cardstock. I then stamped the image again on River Rock dsp (from Well Worn) and I cut out the windows and headlights from there and layered over the top. I added a layer of dots with a NQN marker above and below the car on the white panel. The dsp on the left of the card is also from Well Worn, and I added some retired River Rock buttons tied with baker's twine to embellish.
The rest of the design team have some fabulous samples to inspire you using this technique:
