Two weeks ago, Joni (the very talented illustrator for Paper Pretties) issued a challenge to make a card using paper piecing. I LOVE to paper piece. Sometimes it's just so much easier than coloring! I started with some Basic Grey paper from the Pheobe Collection. I thought this pattern would work well on the watering can. I "shaded" on top of the patterned paper with a Pea Green Copic marker to give the can some dimension. Before I paper pieced the watering can, I cut out the flower from the can of the stamped image so that I could paper piece that on top of the patterned paper. I wasn't crazy about the sentiment stamped on the patterned paper, but when I tried different colors of cardstock, it just didn't look right to me, so I left it as is. This little baby is on it's way to Jillian. Hope you like it, Jillian!
