New card technique, for me ;)

I still consider myself inexperienced in the card making craft. I am always amazed at the talent of so many of the ladies creations I see on the Splitcoast Stampers message board. There is one technique I have seen so many do that I have always wanted to try. So, this weekend I gave it a try.

Below, is my first try at paper piecing using a stamped image. I used one of my new My Favorite Things stamp sets. I cut the umbrella out, colored it with my Prisma pencils. I also covered it with diamond glaze and sprinkled very fine glitter on it to add a touch of bling. Once it dried I used pop up dots to give a 3-d effect.

The next one, I used the same stamps but used patterned paper for the umbrella.

I hope you enjoy!

The paper piecing is very nice. I really like the orange awning, it just makes the card have a special 'pop'!
