The background is embossed cardstock, with inlays of diecut honeycomb segments.  I also used some large flat back pearls.

It's midwinter here in the Southern Hemisphere so it feels great to be playing with some warm colours today.

I based my Copics colouring of this colouring page image on these colours, and used a white gel pen for some accents.

Also used :

white cs card base
black cs mat
metallic red cord
metal 'LOVE' charm for the sentiment

Paper Piecing


My card features an image from Bugaboo Stamps, called Jesse Boy Bear that I paper-pieced in its entirety

 Here are some tips for easy paper piecing
1.  Print mage onto white cardstock
2.  Print image onto patterned/coloured cardstock.
3.  Stick double sided tape on the back of the part of the coloured/patterned image you want to cut out, leave backing strip on.
4.  Cut out the part of the image you're using for piecing
3.  Run a black marker (at right angles) round the cut edges to hide any white paper still showing
4.  Remove backing strips from tape and stick onto the image on the white cardstock
Suggestion : it's best to colour your image first, then do the paper piecing

Also used on my card:

hessian patterned paper
yellow cs mat
denim patterned paper trip
bear pawprint border
fancy paperclip
