Gigi - the bathing beauty

Okay, one more post today. Since I got 365 Card challenges done early enough I was able to create one for some other challenges. This one is for There's Magic in The Air - Magical Monday - Paper Piecing using a free digital stamp from the blog and the technique of...well...paper piecing :) I used the layout sketch from Limelight Papercrafts - Sketch Challenge 29: Dots and of course DOTS!!!
I wish I'd made the card a bit smaller...too much blank space for my taste but oh well :) So the deets:
  • paper: certainly celery, pink pirouette, whisper white, DCWV Nursery paper stack (for the background rectangle and the paper pieced elements of the image)
  • corner dies are cuttlebug and the rhinestones are from Mike's $1 bin.
  • used a white gel pen to color in the large dots and stickled the water
  • The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado
  • Image was colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol, hard to tell in the pic but I color the sunglasses with a silver gel pen; and it and the mat were cut out with nesties

Isn't Gigi so cute?!?! You did a great job of paper piecing, at least for that part, you should be glad you're card is larger! Gigi is happy you made her so beautiful! SAM
