A Spoonfull of Sugar!


Well it's another fine day up here in sunny Scotland!! LOL - Sunny Scotland!! Who am I trying to kid!! It will be sunny for all of half an hour more like!

Just back from town - it looks a bit desolate in the town centre now that our Woolies has closed, but managed to steer clear of my crafty haunt!!!
So on to todays challenge for A Spoonfull of Sugar - Paper Piecing!!

I used the really cute stamp I got from Sue from Bootifulstampz from her One A DAy Giveaway a couple of months ago - It's Maggie with flowers! Isn't she a cutey pie!
I paper-pieced her 'lil shorts, flower pot and flowers then coloured the rest with watercolours

I got some great watercolour paper from Ebay so this was my first time using it - such a difference for colouring when you have good WC paper.

I die cut some circles with my Nesties and used my piece of tablecloth I got from my friend Sabina - it really is great stuff as one of the layers. Punched lots of little flowers and layered them up adding a star gem in the centre.

Stamped my sentiment and added three more gem stars to finish.

Funny you should say about the water colour paper. I was on the hunt for some today, and I looked in the Chinese Supermarket to get it cheep (a bit like the pound shops you get in the UK). I saw lots of doilys for next to nothing but no paper, and now I know what I can do with them the doilys. Thanks for the inspiration - again.
