Evening ladies, Firstly I must apologize as I made a very similar card for last week's WOJ challenge, but this one is for a commission and I thought Willows apron would be perfect for paper piecing so I had to enter it for WOJ challenge 35.
This card is also for Creative Inspirations Challenge 13 where the theme is also paper piecing, Secret Crafter Challenge 37 is pink and green and finally Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 56 which is a fab sketch.
I had never tried paper piecing before but I love the effect it gives so I will definitely be doing it again! The rest of the image is coloured with distress inks and I tried to go for a distressed look with this card so I have distress the papers with tattered rose and the edge of the image with antique linen and tattered rose. I wasn't too sure about it at first, but I think it has come out ok.....well at least I hope so!!!
The papers are from Laura Ashley, the flowers are primas and I have used my leone em branch punch to create .... well...the branches!! I so love this punch, if any of you are thinking about buying it, just buy it!! you'll love it too!!
I have decorated the inside to compliment the front and I have also added my cookie recipe.
Both the cookie recipe and the sentiment on the front are computer generated using the font lucinda handwriting.
Finally, a close up of my colouring and paper piecing. WOJ are looking for additional DT members but unfortunately I'm not sure I have enough WOJ stamps to apply, so I gave it a miss...weep weep!
