Simon Says Stamp DT - Paper Piecing

This week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp is Paper Piecing - love doing this don't you!? As usual the amazingly generous Heidi is providing a $25 gift certificate for the Simon Says Stamp store as the prize!
I decided Tilda was the order of the day seeing as she usually has a nice big area of clothing perfect for paper piecing! My Papers are from Basic Grey Cappella and I've inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.

I have coloured her with copics before paper piecing her blouse using the same Basic Grey Cappella paper as the background panel. I have inked around the edge of the image with tattered rose distress ink.

I made a flower from some of the left over paper using EK success retro flower punches and a pearl from my stash. The peach flowers are flat Hero Arts flowers that I have folded up to look like flower buds and the roses are from my stash. I punched the leaves with a woodware punch.
The beautiful patterned ribbon is by Prima.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Hope you can join us this week at Simon Says Stamp Challenge, the rest of the team have some amazing creations for you too! x
