PaperPlay Challenge week 28

This is the sketch from Paper Play - I love panel cards like this! Choosing what will go in each of the areas is a bit like choosing material to piece a quilt - almost as much fun as making it! 


So first I decided to use this Hero Arts stamp Bird in Circle, and cut out around the circle and flowers after coloring it with pencils. Then I chose my designer papers. Moving from the back forward, they are BoBunny passion fruit dot, doodlebug design sundae stripe, Imagnisce Lucy Bird Daisy May, and doodlebug design sprinkles.  Each block was framed with a coordinating solid, as in the sketch.  Then all I had to do was add the sentiment and some tiny golden gems to the centers of the flowers.

Supplies: HA CG181 Bird in Circle, Papertrey Ink Vintage Picnic Sentiments, white, turquise, hot pink and yellow cardstocks, designer papers above, Versafine onyx black ink, Prismacolor pencils
