Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge - Paper Piecing

This week's Speedy Fox and Friends challenge uses a technique which I think is fun -- paper-piecing.    I chose a relatively new set from MFP for my images, You've Got Style, which works well with paper-piecing.


I used three different papers from a DCWV matstack called The Natural Matstack -- two for the paper-piecing and one for the background.  I stamped the images on the DP with Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed them. I cut out the dark brown sections and glued them onto the printed images.  I then cut out the whole images and popped them up on the center panel of my card.

If you enjoy paper-piecing or if you'd like to try it for the first time, pop over to the MFP Blog and see what the rest of the team has created -- and add your card at the bottom of the post.  You have the chance to win a free set of MFP stamps.

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers - You've Got Style
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Tea Dye
Paper:  MFP Deepest Mahogany, Natural Vanilla Bean; DCWV The Natural Matstack DP
Accessories:  Clear embossing powder, Sponge applicator
