#32 Paper Piecing

 
The new theme for Ike's World Challenge #32
http://ikesworldchallengeblog.blogspot.com
 
is " Paper Piecing"
I used the "Hatter".  A great digi of Ike's that I immediately thought how it would work with paper piecing.  Having been working on Valentine cards my brain said this would make a great leprechaun.  Then I set about making him green.
This is what I did with it for challenge #32

(Don't to forget  to click on the image to see a larger view)
I used a main Christmas green colored cardstock from Recollection (It can be purchased from Michael’s).  The following items were pieced.  The pants, jacket and hat from green.  The hat band and bow from white (I used a small foam piece to attach the bow and give the card more dimension.)  I completed it with a gold and then green mat.  The main card was created with green and I used a St. Patrick’s themed paper for the mat on the main card.
All in all I think he turned from the “Hatter” to Leprechaun just by the use of color fairly well.
 We'd love to see what you can do to make us have a good laugh and have a chance to win the challenge.
So come visit over to Ike's World Challenge   and see all the other wonderful DT creations and see the prize on offer.
Hope to see you there.
