Paper Piecing at Crafty Cardmakers.

Oops, I've done it again. I managed to make it right through to the 9th November this time, sharing a post with you every day, before I failed due to my very late journey back from the NEC.
I had to go back to Peterboro after the show, to pick up all the rest of my crafty stash and await the arrival of my lovely daughter, before continuing on to Surrey.
I suppose that will teach me that I really must get myself sorted with scheduled posts!!
Any how, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers, where Viv has chosen the theme of Paper Piecing.
I got a little carried away and made a set of four cards during my Metal and Burlap class, when I was at Janice and Andy's .
I showed the class how to make a quick and easy background using a 6x6 paper pad, and then used a lovely Whippersnapper stamp, Bazzil card stock and bleach as the basis for the Paper pieced panels.
I stamped the image onto three different but co-ordinating papers and also some metal foil as well as a piece of dark orange bazzil card.
I painted some of the images on each card using bleach which has taken out most of the colour.
I also cut out the flowers and heart and the pieced the images back together after first shaping them using a ball tool.
That were added using silicon to give added dimension.
I hope that you get the chance to join us during the next fortnight. Our prizes have been provided by SATURATED CANARY and WOODWARE CRAFT COLLECTION.
