Paper-Piecing on Kraft (Conquering Paper Mountain # 8)


He,he ....my partner has taken our son out, so I'm having a few hours crafting ....May even get dressed at some point.

Here, I used a very old Stamps Happen stamp and two techniques - my all-time favourite, paper piecing, and a new to me technique, pencils on kraft card.  I don't think these are the 'proper' pencils as these are just watercolour ones (used without water here!) , but I think it turned out okay.

I also used several sheets from a magazine freebie 6x6 pad by Bo Bunny, therefore helping to reduce my paper mountain. 

I'd like to enter:

I think I recognize some of those papers from my own stash. I think you've made great choices of papers, I really like this clean but decorative look. And extra points for it being non lumpy, so this would be suitable to mail too.

The color scheme and paper piecing give off a great "country" or "homespun" vibe! Thanks for sharing your cute roly-poly Santa card with us at 52CCT!
