Sparkle Creations Challenge #30: Paper Piecing

Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to a brand new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge! This week we want you to do some PAPER PIECING on your challenge entries!

For those of you who pop by my blog regularly, you will know that paper piecing is one of my all-tme favourite technique, so when I saw this challenge theme I thought "yeh baby", LOL! For my challenge card I used one of the brand new release stamps, Sweet Treats Emily, and paper pieced her dress, apron and head-piece.

Sparkle Creations is sponsoring Corrosive Challenge for the month of February, and so I thought I'd combine my SCRSC DT card with this week's Corrosive challenge #103 because it's a sketch .. and you all know I LOVE sketches!! Corrosive Challenge posts a new challenge every Sunday but has one sponsor for the whole of the month. They draw a winner from all weeks of participation, so the more times you enter during the month, the more chances you have to win the monthly prize! The prize for February is the brand new and just released Chef Oliver and Sweet Treats Emily SCRS rubber stamps! Here is the sketch:

So why not join in both challenges, or even combine them like I have, and give yourself double the chance to win some brand new SCRS rubber!

Sparkle Creations challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen, and they will receive a SCRS rubber stamp. [In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation.]

Do pop along to the rest of the SCRS DT's blogs to take a peek at their awesome challenge creations:

- Corrosive Challenge #103 Sketch
