Crafty Ann's #69 Paper Piecing

It's time for another challenge at Crafty Ann's and the theme this time is Paper Piecing either digitally or with real paper! Now how difficult could that be! It took me three attempts to come up with this card!


I've used the Duck in Umbrella image as I thought it was very apt at the moment! This has been digitally pieced using various papers from the Cobweb collection and layered up for dimension. The sky and water have been paper pieced using papers from the Mottled Stone collection and the backing papers are also from the same collection. Image and papers are all available from  Crafty Ann's Digi Shop. I've used various sized nestie circles to make the base card and for all the layers. Card is finished with a bow and sentiment from my stash.


Do pop over to the challenge blog to see Ann and the teams creations, you won't be disappointed.
