Stripy Scarf

A while back I admired the colour co-ordination of someone's card and discovered they had started by choosing a patterned paper and then colouring their image to match. That's not normally how I operate but I tried it here.

The stripy papers were a magazine freebie from long, long ago, as were the chipboard embellishments. The image is from Pure Innocence range, coloured with Promarkers and I added a little Wink of Stella on the heart and snowball.

This is adorable, Marina! Great use of stripes, and your paper-piecing looks fabulous. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

Such a sweet image Marina - I adore the way you've coloured her - showcasing the touch of snow and bird on her glove tells a story! And your co ordination with your stripey paper brings it all together so beautifully. Thanks for sharing with us Just Add Ink this week :-)

What a fabulous stripey creation Marina! I love that you paper pieced some of your snow PI girl. Great colouring to match too! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

This is genius!! Did you cut out those areas with a knife so we could see the paper thru it?? Amazing, its such a cool effect and your colouring skills are incredible too. So very glad you shared this with us at Just Add Ink this week!!
