Paper Pieced Rebecca Card


I love to "dress" my stamped images using designer paper and paper piecing. Rebecca from Repeat Impressions is one of my favorite stamps to do this technique with, and I created this card for a class on paper piecing I am teaching in my home. I started with a larger kraft card, and layered "Resplendent Rectangles" from Spellbinders in kraft and cream paper. I stamped Rebecca and colored her flesh and hair. I paper pieced her dress in a pretty orange dp and then stamped, embossed and attached the pinafore in yellow. I added a "happy hello" from Flourishes.

I am entering this card in the patterned paper challenge at Virginia's View and the Anything Goes challenge at Scribble and Scrap.
