Have a mice birthday
I am thrilled to be a guest designer over at Crafting With Dragonflies. This time their challenge is to use 5 or more scraps of designed paper.
I was reminded of when I used scraps of material left over from dressmaking to make patchwork dolls quilts and table runners. Using this idea I die cut diamond shapes in three different papers and arranged them in the 'tumbling blocks' pattern used in patchwork. Another paper was used to boarder the 'quilt' and a fifth paper used for the corner squares of the quilt. This fifth paper was also used to back the main image and the sentiment. All the papers used were from Raspberry Road Designs.
The stamped image is from Joanna Sheen's Happy Days House Mouse collection and was coloured using Promarkers. Card candi were adhered to three of the corners and a bow to the fourth.
The sentiment was from Joanna Sheen's spring collection of House Mouse designs.
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - hip to be square
Whoopsi Daisy - use more than two patterned papers
Digi Sketch - use a rubber stamp
