Oh I had so much fun making this card! I knew that I wanted to enter this week's Digis With Attitude! challenge (#17 'It's the Puffy challenge!') AND this week's I Love Promarkers challenge (#53 Paper Piecing) too, so put my thinking cap on as to how I could combine the two on one card.
Here's a sneak peek of what I came up with...
This was my first time paper piecing, and I will definately be doing it again, I LOVE how the image has elements that match the DPs :)
The image I chose was a DWA! one, Disco Tween, you can find her here. As she is a funky kinda gal, I decided to paper piece her HAIR as well as her trousers.....and here she is!
Cool huh! I coloured the rest of her with Promarkers, (face, arms, tummy, earrings and shoes) and mounted her onto a lacey circle nesty. To get the 'puffy' bit, I threaded some pink funky fibres through the 'lacey' bits of the circle (I went round twice so it was nice and 'puffy!')
The DPs are freebies from a Cardmaking & Papercraft mag, which I inked the edges of and matted onto black card. I also added some funky fibres to the yellow piece of the DPs at the bottom. I finished off with some die cut flourishes, two pearl-headed pins inter-twined at the bottom and cut some extra circles from the left over DPs and glued them to the black circle, so they look a bit like the coloured lights at a disco (well, that's what they used to have years ago when I last went to a disco!!)
I would also like to enter Your Next Stamp Challenge #36 - Paper Piecing.
Do hope you like her!
Thanks for looking, and Happy Crafting!
