Lawnscaping Challenge, Paper Piecing ...received the award of Honorable Gnome!

Pin It

It's time for another Lawnscaping challenge! It's their 20th challenge and this one is to use paper piecing on a project. I'm really excited as I thought I had missed my chance to enter, but I didn't! I'm getting this in just under the wire as it's due today. Whew!

I was inspired by this card by Yainea. I die cut a circle in the American Craft's night sky paper and placed it over a moon I drew with Copics. I then die cut a tree from my Cindy Loo cartridge from my Cricut, once with the kraft paper and once with the Hambly woodgrain overlay. Edged the kraft die cut with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo and adhered it to the overlay with Glossy Accents adhesive and adhered it to the card. I stamped and colored in the owl from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the forest on Kraft and cut it out. Then I stamped the witches hat from Lawn Fawn's Hats Off to You and adhered it to the Owl's head. Then paper pieced the witch owl with foam adhesives to the tree. For the sentiment I cut a strip of vellum and stamped it with Lawn Fawn's Happy Haunting stamp set's "Have a Spooktacular Halloween" with a white paint dabber as the ink. I folded the left over edges around the back and adhered it that way so you couldn't see adhesive through the vellum. I also wrapped some of Doodlebug's Halloween twine around the top and bottom of the vellum to secure it a little more. The last stamps I used were the little bats from the same Happy Haunting set to make the moon look a lil spooky. Lastly I cut and pieced some clouds from the AC's cardstock and paper pieced them with more foam adhesives and added a couple of bling bits here and there.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you and your family have a super "spooktacular" Halloween!

Inky and glittery fingers for all!
