Fun In the Sun


This is my Guest DT card for Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge #57 Summertime.  The image is from Wags 'n Whiskers, naturally.  This is the first time I have tried paper piecing.  I need to trim a little better, but other than that I really enjoyed this technique.  The papers, ribbon and flowers are ones I received in a Key Ingredient kit from Taylored Expressions.  I really need to keep track of the names of the papers that they send.  Right now I just throw then all in a basket so I have no idea who the manufacturers are.  The small red dotted paper was perfect for the bathing suit.  I colored her with Copic markers.  I used a Nestability die to cut the image out.

Copics:  B0000, B000, B00, B01, BO5, BG0000, BG000, BG11, BG13, C3,
              E00, E02, E31, E25, E29, R11, Y17, Y19
