Dream Team Blog Hop - Paper Piecing

Hello lovely visitors!

Mo's Dream Team is making a special blog hop in order to give you some inspiration, to light you up with new ideas for your cards and paper projects. Our theme this month is "Paper Piecing".


Mina is hosting this hop, so I suppose you've started your journey from her wonderful blog, and then after several stops on the way, arrived to this page after you've visited Vili's blog.

For my card I used a stamp which is called "Janie in July" and may be found in Mo's Digital Pencil online shop here.


For coloring I used the following Copic markers:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E13, E11, R20
Hair: E30, E31, E33, E35
Bathing Suit: RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91, RV00

Here's the ready card:


And this is how the paper pieces look (I've used them on the towel and tried to make it look 3D-like):


Here are several additional close-up shots:


The papers used in the card are from these stacks:
1. Material Girl by Cosmo Cricket
2. Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket
3. The Boyfriend  by Cosmo Cricket 


I want to enter the following challenges:
1. Summer & Sun @ AUD Sentiments Challenge
2. Fun in the Sun @ Crafty Sentiments
3. Here Comes The Summer @ Craft-room Challenge

From my page you should proceed and hop to Anneke's, I'm sure she has something interesting for you too :)

Don't forget to leave comments along the way as there is a couple of spot prizes on comments left. 

The blog hop order if you get lost is as follows:



Thanks for hopping in today!
