Thinking I'm getting the hang of it now...

So this was my second attempt at paper piecing, and I thought I'd do another male card. The CCSR range makes making mens cards an absolute doddle. If you haven't got any yet then you really must. And you really must try the very first challenge Clare has on her blog too.

I thought I would use up some of the scraps from the CCSR Launch party challenge, so I stamped the fisherman stamp onto white concord card, the plaid paper and the spotty paper all in the teal colourway. The dungarees were cut out in 2 pieces from the plaid paper and the hat and also 3 fish (also from the for him stamps by CCSR)

I coloured the base image on the concord card with promarkers then stuck on his paper clothes, and used the SU scallop punch to shape the bottom edge. Then matted the image onto a scrap of teal core'dinations card which I had sanded, then punched the bottom edge with the SU punch.

The base card was covered with the plaid teal paper, the image was added with 3d foam tape and the fish were added with foam squares.

I wonder if this would count as a CAS (clean and simple) card too??
